Electron Microscopy

| posted 21 Jan, 2022 21:42
Hi
I was wondering if anyone can recommend a place/lab to send our samples for electron microscopy? We haven't been successful in finding a resource yet.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
Thanks

Our Core Microscopy Facility has done TEM for the phage course here at the Univ. Nebraska-Lincoln, and neighboring schools (Nebraska Wesleyan also in Lincoln, and Doane Univ. in nearby Crete), so has lots of experience with phage samples. Here is the web site: https://biotech.unl.edu/microscopy with contact info and fees. I don't know how busy the TEM is, but if you find the rates work for your budget, you can check with the Director about their schedule.

Similar to Cathy's suggestion, you could also reachout to UMBC's Imaging Facility. If you would like to cehck on their pricing and availability, you can email their facility director, Tagide deCarvalho at tagided@umbc.edu. Please copy me on that email to Tagide.
