Cellular Imaging Training

Basic Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
This class will detail preparation and processing of biological specimens for SEM. Included in the class are fixation, dehydration, and drying methods (HMDS or CPD). Mounting and sputter coating will also be addressed. This class will also give an overview of instrumentation (SEM microscope) and support equipment. A procedures manual with specific protocols and resources will be provided with this class. See more
Basic Transmission Electron Microscopy
This class will detail preparation and processing of biological specimens for TEM. Included in this class are fixation, dehydration and embedding processes. Specimen support films, sectioning and negative staining are also addressed. This class will also give an overview of instrument (TEM microscopes) and support equipment. A procedures manual with specific protocols and resources will be provided with this class. See more
Cryo Techniques (EM)
This class will explain how to prepare samples for high pressure freezing (HPF) and demonstrate the process. The class will address automatic freeze substitution and cryo-ultramicrotomy. An overview of immunoelectron microscopy will also be included. See more
