Facility Details


The Electron Microscope Laboratory (EML) is an imaging core and shared resource facility of the University of California at Berkeley. Our mission is to provide high-quality electron microscopy services, education, and training for the UC Berkeley campus, other academic institutions, and private companies at-large.

The lab is equipped with high resolution transmission electron microscopes, scanning electron microscopes, high pressure freezer and full suite of ancillary sample preparation equipment to fit most EM-related needs. The equipment can provide nanometer scale analysis for biological, chemical and materials science.

The EML offers multiple levels of service that correspond with the services and training each user desires:

Project consultation
Education and training for new users
Equipment for trained users who anticipate having long-term EM projects
Full service microscopy (as time allows)

All services are available to anyone with an interest in electron microscopy: graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty, staff, and non-UC users.
