How can electron microscopy facilitate your research project?
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. 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.
Highly experienced staff provide the necessary training and can help users address any of their complex electron imaging needs.
For sample preparation, please contact UCLA Brain Research Institute Electron Microscopy core facility (http://www.bri.ucla.edu/research/core-facilities) or Sergey Ryazantsev, firstname.lastname@example.org
We use a variety of techniques to image and characterize samples. For example:
High resolution imaging can resolve individual atoms
Cryo-EM can reveal structures and molecular interactions of biological complexes
STEM imaging can differentiate atom types
X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) can quantify elemental composition
Tomography can resolve the 3D structure of materials and biological tissues
Correlative fluorescence and electron microscopy can characterize tissue and cellular samples in 3D
SEM can visualize surface features up to 1 nm resolution
