The EM facility offers a range of conventional and advanced electron microscopic methods to all interested research groups in the institute. Based on two transmission electron microscopes (Zeiss 910, FEI Morgagni), both equipped with high resolution CCD-cameras, we performe plastic embedding for ultrastructure and phenotyping, immunogold labeling with cryo methods as well as negative staining. The facility is available for all types of collaborations including advice in preparation techniques, service, and the realization of common research projects.
