Electron Microscopy Laboratory

Director: Lo, Woo-Kuen, Ph.D.


Established in 1985, the RCMI Electron Microscopy Core facility provides complete scanning and transmission services, from specimen fixation/dehydration/critical point drying/ embedding/polymerization/ block trimming/sectioning/slide-making/formvar-coating, to examination and documentation of prepared samples utilizing JEOL 820 scanning and JEOL 1200EX transmission electron microscopes.






  • Development & scanning service ( Support service )

    Electron microscopy negatives are developed and scanned onto CD for the investigator.

  • Examination and documentation service ( Material analysis service )

    "Examination and documentation of prepared specimens utilizing Transmission and/or Scanning Electron Microscope."

  • Sample preparation for electron microscopy ( Material processing service )

    "Complete preparation of samples (i.e. fixation, dehydration, critical point drying, sputter coating, embedding, polymerization, knife-making, trimming, H/E slide-preparation, sectioning, formvar-coated grid preparation and
    subsequent grid-staining)."
