Established in 1985, the RCMI EM 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.
$150 per sample preparation; $300 for off-campus users $2.50 per TEM negative
- 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).
- Examination and documentation of prepared specimens utilizing Transmission and/or Scanning Electron Microscope.
- EM negatives developed and scanned onto CD for investigator.
There is a $35.00/hr charge for microscope- only access; $70/hr for off-campus users.
