Electron Microscopes


Transmission Electron Microscope (Talos 120c): The Thermo Scientific Talos L120C TEM is a 20-120 kV thermionic (LaB6) transmission electron microscope uniquely designed for performance and productivity across a wide range of samples and applications, such as 2D and 3D imaging of cells, cell organelles, asbestos, polymers, and soft materials, both at ambient and cryogenic temperatures. Equipped with CETA 16M 4K CMOS camera and GATAN Elsa 698 cryo-transfer holder.


Scanning Electron Microscope (JSM-6701F): Field emission gun SEM with semi in-lens detector and conical cold FEG allowing analysis of both, fine surface structures of delicate specimens at very low accelerating voltages and internal structures of a thin specimen using high accelerating voltage in STEM mode.


Transmission Electron Microscope (JEM2200FS): Analytical 200 kV cryo-TEM with FEG and in-column energy Omega Filter for high-resolution imaging (0.2 nm), collection of diffraction patterns and spectral data. Equipped with 3D-tomography system, GATAN 626 cryo-holder and TVIPS TemCam-F416 CMOS camera (16bit, 4k) for ultra-low noise cryo-imaging.

Cryo-processing Devices

Leica EM HPM100: High pressure freezing system for vitrification (cryo-fixation of samples in an amorphous ice). Suitable for cells grown on sapphire discs or in suspension so as for synthetic materials and composites. Provides excellent ultrastructural preservation of biological membranes and delicate structures .
