Electron Microscope Unit

Electron Microscope UnitElectron Microscope Unit suppports ultrastructural characterization of microbial pathogens and the structural change of the pathogen-infected cells. This unit offers high quality imaging services by state-of-art techniques such as conventional and immuno-electron microscopy and 3D tomography, and also provide training on sample preparation and equipment usage. This unit is responsible for transmission and scanning electron microscopes (JEOL), high-pressure freezer (LEICA), ultra-microtomes (LEICA and REICHERT), vacuum coater, hydrophilic treatment device, and osmium plasma coater in addition to general laboratory facilities for a wide range application of electron microscopy.
