The Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) provides information about the ultrastructure, or internal structure, of thin sections of a specimen.

Darkroom
Darkroom

The Darkroom Facility is open to faculty, staff and students and can be utilized in the development/printing of electron microscopy films, light microscopy films and X-ray films.

Microtomes
Microtome

Sorvall MT-6000 Thick

Sections 0.5-2.0 um in thickness. Stain with general stains - Mallory's Azure II Methylene Blue or Toluidine Blue. Used to screen tissue, and select area to be viewed at EM level.

Microtome

Leica Ultracut E

All three microtomes are utilized in the sectioning of tissue embedded in resin. All can be used in thick and/or thin sectioning.

 

Confocal Microscope

The Leica TCS SPE confocal microscope system designed for confocal recording (laser scanning images) of fluorescence-marked living and fixed specimens as well as for quantitative measurements. The TCS SPE is equipped with long-lasting solid-state lasers with emission wavelengths of 488 nm, 532 nm and 635 nm. It is equipped with the new LAS AF software.
