FEI Morgagni 268










TEM uses a beam of electrons transmitted through an ultrathin specimen to provide high resolution, two dimensional images, on the order of nanometers. Sample preparation either requires a solution of isolated material (such as viruses or nanoparticles) or thinly cut slices from resin embedded samples. The facility houses an FEI Morgagni M268 100 kV TEM equipped with a Gatan Orius CCD camera. Specimens can be prepared with the equipment available in the facility or a sent for embedding and sectioning to the UMB Dental School Electron Microscopy Core.
