The cryo-electron microscopy facility provides capabilities for high resolution electron microscopy and tomography of stained and unstained specimens. It is equipped with an FEI Tecnai F20 cryo-electron microscope. Cryo-EM allows the observation of biological samples in their native environment, in the absence of the distortions and artifacts associated with traditional sample preparation methods. The facility also has a Leica UC6 cryo-microtome for ultrathin sectioning of frozen samples. The instruments are available for use by trained users (training is available) or as a core service.
