Electron Microscopy Research Services provide an electron microscopy service to students and researchers throughout the University. The facilities allow high resolution, high magnification imaging of a wide range of specimens from both biological and material sciences. We also provide a service to companies and individuals outside the University, not only in the North East but internationally.

Training courses in all areas of electron microscopy are available. Our training courses are aimed at absolute beginners but can be tailored to suit your needs if you have some experience.

Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have, just contact us for further help.

EM Research Services are part of Newcastle Biomedicine core scientific facilities within the Faculty of Medical Sciences. A full list of University Research Facilities available for commercial use can be found on the Services for Business web pages.

Events 2014

The Microscience Microscopy Congress 2014, 30th June - 3rd July 2014, Manchester, UK

This is mmc2014

Combining the very best of the 2012 European Microscopy Congress and the MICROSCIENCE International Conference and Exhibition series, the Royal Microscopical Society is launching the Microscience Microscopy Congress 2014.

The conference expands from the three parallel sessions of MICROSCIENCE to four, and will feature the best from both worlds in the microscopical sense – from the life and physical sciences, and from light and electron microscopy. 

The Conference will run side-by-side with Europe's largest exhibition of microscopy and imaging equipment, with one hundred companies demonstrating the widest range of equipment and consumables.

If this isn't enough, the event is also packed with features such as training opportunities, workshops, the RMS International Scientific Imaging Competitions and social events.

More details and registration.

We look forward to seeing you in Manchester.
