Philips/FEI T-12 Transmission Electron Microscope
Why Use This Microscope?
The Philips/FEI T-12 is a high resolution transmission electron microscope with eucentric goniometer stage and Gatan cryotransfer stage. It provides much higher resolution (ability to view smaller objects) than that provided by light microscopy. There is a side mounted 2k x 2k AMT CCD camera system and a bottom-mounted 2k by 2k Gatan CCD camera system to facilitate digital image collection and analysis.
The laboratory is fully equipped to carry out numerous aspects of "routine" as well as specialized electron microscopy. Included in the specialized services available through the resource are preparative techniques, such as:
- Embedding and sectioning
- Negative staining
- Enzyme cytochemistry
- Critical point drying for scanning electron microscopy
- Image quantification
- Image processing
- Pattern analysis
- Leica Ultracut microtomes
- EMS 950x Carbon/Metal Evaporator
- Slam and plunge freezing equipment
