The core facility for Electron Microscopy is integrated as part of the Laboratory for Cell Biology of Prof. Dr. Uwe-G. Maier. For different kind of samples, various preparation methods and techniques can be offered and applied. Beside classical methods like negative staining of cell suspensions or purified proteins, which is a straight forward technique, some more complex procedures are also performed:
Therefore, it should be possible to find the best fitting method for the specific research interest and finally investigate the samples in a 200 kV Transmission Electron Microscope from JEOL (JEM-2100).
The core facility has been conducted by Dr. Andreas Klingl who changed to the LMU Munich in July 2014.
