|Electron Microscopy Resource Laboratory|
The Electron Microscopy Resource Laboratory performs a large number of in-house services dedicated to ultrastructural morphology analysis of cells and tissues or
low resolution molecular imaging. The core provides expensive, specialized equipment and experienced technical staff required for performing these analyses.
We currently offer a variety of electron microscopy services and a complete array of computerized morphological data analysis services.|
For most users, the Core will perform a complete analysis from sample preparation through collection of data, most often with the user present during data collection. More experienced users can perform the work themselves, with the Core providing guidance and assistance as needed. The Core staff and affiliated Scientific Advisory Committee members are always available for consulting on the morphological aspects of a project, and the Core staff is willing to custom-design services to fit any investigator's needs.
