Electron Microscopy

The EM facility offers different types of services on a wide variety of EM techniques, like cryo-electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, correlative light and electron microscopy. immuno gold labeling etc.

Service work

For small projects on a limited amount of samples, we can offer our services directly. Our support staff can advice you on sample preparation and image your samples.


For longer projects we can collaborate and advice you on which imaging technique you need and provide different modes of imaging.

Training and Use of Instruments

For projects that require extended imaging, we can provide training to users so they can use the electron microcsopes and image independently. After training on the microscope, the user gets access to the booking system and the microscope.
