Electron Microscopy Core
Access to EM Core equipment and services is available to all researchers at OHSU. We also provide EM services to non-OHSU institutions and individuals. Our intention is to make services available at reasonable rates. To maximize our time and to minimize costs, researchers may participate in sample preparation, sectioning, and/or EM viewing steps. Training for equipment usage is provided at an hourly rate, and individuals can schedule access to equipment after they are trained. We invite anyone interested in using EM approaches for pilot projects, or ongoing investigations to consult with us on their needs, protocols, services, and cost estimates.
- FEI CM120/Biotwin TEM (with Gatan 626 cryostage and 794 CCD camera)
