Transmission Electron Microscopy

Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)

Transmission electron microscopy allows the visualisation of cell ultrastructure.

Our lab houses a Philips CM100 TEM with Compustage and high resolution digital image capture. This allows very accurate measuring, image collection, montage and random sampling. 

Typical applications for TEM:

  • plant, animal tissue and cell culture
  • isolated proteins
  • monolayers
  • bacteria and viruses
  • particulate size and distribution in non-biological samples

Experienced staff are here to provide support in all areas of TEM. Training is available for Newcastle University researchers which will reduce costs in the long term.
