The Electron Microscopy (EM) unit at the Wolfson Bioimaging Facility houses advanced microscope systems for imaging cells, tissues, organisms and materials.

Our excellent facilities include two transmission electron microscopes (TEMs) a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and an extensive range of processing equipment. Later in 2018 we will be installing a serial block face SEM for 3D analysis of specimens.

Our support team provides advice, support and training for standard electron microscopy protocols and specialised techniques such as cryo-electron microscopy (TEM and SEM), scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) , electron tomography, immunolabelling and correlative light and electron microscopy.

Please contact one of the team to discuss projects, arrange training or for advice on sample preparation, image acquisition and analysis.

In 2017 a new GW4 CryoTEM facility (FEI Talos Artica) was established in the Life Sciences Building and is affiliated with the Wolfson Bioimaging Facility.
