Electron Microscopy

We provide the scientific community with the devices and electron microscopes necessary for sample preparation and imaging by electron microscopy.

Our service offer comprises the sample preparation with the following methods: negative staining, plastic embedding, immuno-labelling, high pressure freezing, freeze substitution, (cryo)-ultramictotomy… We routinely use advanced imaging modes such as electron tomography (ET), Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM), Scanning Electron Microscopy in « Serial Block-Face » mode (see an example above), Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM)…

For the users willing to work autonomously, we offer individual or group trainings for the conventional methods in transmission and scanning electron microscopy.

Tarifs/Pricing

– T4: Teams from laboratories within the PICsL perimeter (IBDM, CIML, INMED, IMM, Institut Fresnel)

– T3: Teams from laboratories outside the PICsL perimeter

– T2: Other public users

– T1: Private users (with or without collaboration)

The pricing of the microscopes booking, our service offer and our training offer is based on fares validated by the CNRS.
