We provide the scientific community with the devices and electron microscopes necessary for sample preparation and imaging by electron microscopy.
Our services include the sample preparation with the following methods: negative staining, plastic embedding, immuno-labelling, high pressure freezing, freeze substitution, (cryo)-ultramicrotomy… We routinely use advanced imaging modalities such as electron tomography (ET), Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM), Scanning Electron Microscopy in « Serial Block-Face » mode, Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM)…
For the users who wish to work independently, we offer individual or group training in the conventional methods of transmission and scanning electron microscopy
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.
