Electron Microscopy Facility
The Electron Microscopy Facility is equipped with a JEOL transmission electron microscope JEM-1230 with capacity to operate at 120 Kv. The Facility has a Gatan Bioscan CCD camera 702, a cryo-holder and a Gatan anti-contamination devide as well as a Gatan system for cryo-sample preparation (“Cryoplunge”). Recently, the facility has purchased a digital camera CMOS TVIPS TemCam-F416, 16 mega pixels, and a 16×16 micron of pixel size, placed post-column, which allows data collection at high and medium resolution that can be collected and stored directly in digital format. Software for automatic low dose imaging is also being used.
