Electron Microscopy

Electron Imaging Center for NanoMachines

Overview:

 

The EICN provides advanced electron imaging tools for a broad range of research, covering a scale range from micrometers to angstroms, and delivering valuable structural information for cell biology, microbiology, biomolecular, molecular, and materials sciences. The state-of-the-art EICN facility offers all major electron microscopy (EM) modalities, including:

    • Cryo electron microscopy (cryoEM)
    • Cryo electron tomography (cryoET)
    • Cryo-immuno electron microscopy
    • Single-particle 3D reconstruction
    • 3D tomographic reconstruction
    • Ultrathin sectioning (room temperature and cryo)
    • High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM)
    • High-resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM)
    • Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) analysis for mass and elementary mapping

Center Highlights
  • Leader in the field of cryoEM
  • Provides state-of-the-art Electron Imaging Tools
  • Develops cutting-edge technology of cryoEM reconstruction
  • Study virus structures and infection processes; important sub-cellular complexes; engineered nanostructures and devices

Services:

 

The EICN can assist you in achieving success in your research by providing state-of-the-art electron microscopy instruments and assisted usage services. Highly experienced staff provides necessary training and can help users address complex electron imaging needs. The EICN offers advanced electron imaging techniques for visualizing materials, nanomachines, and cellular structures at atomic or nanometer scales in 2D and 3D. In addition, our latest integrated iCorr technology enables a streamlined approach to correlative microscopy to perform both fluorescence light and electron microscopy for biological research.
