Facility Details

We provide services and instrumentation for imaging and characterization of materials with a heavy bio focus. Some instruments are available for independent use. We also provide full service TEM, cryoTEM, SEM/FIB and cryoSEM/FIB, sample preparation and imaging. Additionally, we conduct CLEM and cryoCLEM workflows utilizing cryoFluorescence, cryoSEM and cryoFIB with a focus on bio samples. In some cases the endpoint imaging is in the SEM/FIB (2D or 3D volumeEM). In other instances samples are transferred to one of a selection of cryoTEMs. We also provide immuno gold labeling and immunoEM. In addition to imaging services we provide training on instruments for independent user access: rheometer, AFM, DLS, and Spectradyne (counting & sizing nanoparticles). Our instruments and services are available to both non-profit and for-profit entities.
