Techniques

The BioEM facility offers a range of different methods for imaging biological structures, from tissues, and cells to single molecules.

Techniques offered by the BioEM facility

Transmission Electron Microscopy

This technique can be used to image the ultrastructure of cells and tissues at nanometer resolution.

Scanning Electron Microscopy

This method can be used to analyse the surface of structures.

3view Serial Block Face Imaging

Block face imaging is a fast and convenient technique used to obtain high resolution 3D images from a sample
