The RII Imaging Cores - Electron provides full-service biological Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) to researchers. Users drop off fixed samples and we process them for TEM, section the blocks, and provide the user with digital images taken at various magnifications. We can provide >1 micron thick plastic or frozen sections suitable for light microscopy, in addition to the 70nm thin sections used for TEM. We have two ultramicrotomes (Leica UC6 or Reichert E) which are available for experienced users (our RMC PTXL and UCT-cryo ultramicrotomes are not available for general use). If users want to review their own samples, we will teach you how to use our FEI T12 TEM. The facility has a research-grade (Pelco) microwave for rapid infiltration of samples, including immuno label. Dr. Tonino has experience with immuno-EM and EM-ISH.
