Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)

Developed by: Centro Andaluz de Nanomedicina y Biotecnología BIONAND

Description

Conventional TEM provides structural information of samples prepared to electron transparency in the sub-nanometer range. Once prepared, many biological samples, including bacteria, viruses, yeasts, cells, and tissue sections can be characterized using TEM. Moreover, TEM can be used to characterize many other types of material such as substrates or nanoparticles making it a highly versatile technique.


Equipment:

FEI Tecnai G2 20 TWIN Transmission Electron Microscope

Applications

  • Cellular characterization 
  • Tissue characterization
  • Biomaterials characterization 
  • Macromolecular complexes characterization
