Electron microscopy

Please also visit the webpage of the Network for Electron microscopy in Tübingen:

The electron microscopy not only serves for research and teaching purposes of our own group, but also as service location for other working groups in the Biology Department. Our assistants give advice on using the different preparation techniques and on handling the devices. They also prepare samples and support external users in the analysis at the scanning electron microscope. In general, the use of our devices is free for members of the Department of Biology, but we have to invoice the proportional operating costs for our devices (according to the agreement below) for large projects (>20 samples).

For external users (outside of the Department of Biology), samples can be analyzed with the transmission or the scanning electron microscope for a corresponding fee (see below).

At our group we provide the following traditional preparation techniques and devices:
