Electron microscopy

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

Our excellent facilities include two transmission electron microscopes (TEMs), two scanning electron microscopes (SEM), a serial block-face SEM for 3D analysis of specimens and an extensive range of processing equipment.

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 facility for high-resolution electron cryo-microscopy (FEI Talos Artica) was established in the Life Sciences Building and is affiliated with the Wolfson Bioimaging Facility.
