Facility Details

Our mission is to provide high-quality transmission electron microscopy (TEM) services, education, and training for the Penn State Hershey campus, other academic institutions, and private companies at large.

The lab is equipped with high-resolution transmission electron microscopes (JEOL 1400) and full suite of ancillary sample preparation equipment to fit most TEM-related needs. The equipment can provide nanometer scale analysis for biological, chemical and materials science. The TEM facility offers multiple levels of service that correspond with the services and training each user desires:

Project consultation
Education and training for new users
Full-service transmission electron microscopy.
TEM services include sample preparation, fixation, embedding, ultra-microtomy, staining, TEM imaging, immuno-localization (i.e. immunogold EM), and negative staining.
