The facility maintains equipment for sample preparation, including a Reichert Ultracut E microtome and a Sorvall MT 5000 microtome for ultrathin sectioning, a Ladd Research Industries critical point dryer, an Emitech K100X glow discharge unit, and an Emitech K550 sputter coater. The microtomes are used for cutting 1-5 um sections for light microscopy and 60-90 nm sections for transmission electron microscopy. The critical point dryer and sputter coater are used to prepare samples for scanning electron microscopy.
