EM platform at CIC bioGUNE provides two transmission electron microscopes
and the auxiliary equipments required for cryo-electron microscopy
. The most sophisticated microscope is the JEM-2200FS/CR
, equipped with a 200kV field emission gun (FEG) and an OMEGA in-column energy filter. The energy filter included in the JEM-2200FS electron microscope allows the observation of thick samples, necessary for cryotomography experiments. The other microscope is the JEM-1230
, equipped with a 120kV thermionic gun. This microscope is available for in house and external users trained in TEM
transmission electron microscope (JEOL, Japan), equipped with an ULTRASCAN 4000 SP (4008×4008 pixels) cooled slow-scan CCD camera (GATAN, UK).
transmission electron microscope (JEOL, Japan), equipped with an ORIUS SC1000 (4008×2672 pixels) cooled slow-scan CCD camera (GATAN, UK). This microscope can be booked by trained users.
