The Electron Microscopy Core Facility (EMcore) offers researchers access to a wide range of transmission and scanning electron microscopy methods (TEM, SEM).
As part of the Institute for Disease Modeling and Targeted Medicine (IMITATE), the EMcore is available to all interested working groups of the institute as well as external interested parties as a common research infrastructure.
Together with the users, we determine the appropriate method for answering their questions and offer the entire EM workflow as a full service:

Sample preparation, fixation, preparation and recording of the data.

For more work-intensive projects, we instruct the users on the devices so that they can work independently.
In addition to classic electron microscopy (TEM, SEM), other methods such as cryopreparation techniques (cryosubstitution, cryo-ultramicrotomy),
immune EM, serial block area scanning electron microscopy (SBF-SEM), array tomography scanning electron microscopy and electron tomography are offered.
