Electron microscopy

Research and training centre of MU for transmission and scanning microscopy of biological samples and implants. Reference workstation of fy TESCAN s.r.o.

Equipment for preparation of samples

  • Leica EM UC6ultramicrotome for ultrathin sectioning of biological and industrial specimen samples
  • Bal-Tec CPD 030 Critical Point Dryer for drying water-containing biological specimens
  • Bal-Tec SCD 040 sputter coaters for the sputtering of conductive metal layers (the thickness of a few nm) to the surface of poorly conductive, rugged biological samples.
  • Polaron SC7620 a compact low cost SEM sputter coater
  • Polaron CA7625 carbon coating accessory

Microscopes

FEI Morgagni 268D

routine 100 kV transmission electron microscope, 4 MPxCCD camera. Mainly for observation of biological samples.

TESCAN VEGA TS 5136 XM

fully PC-controlled scanning electron microscopes designed for high vacuum or variable pressure operations with very large specimen chamber and fully motorized specimen stage. In low vacuum mode, nonconductive specimens can be examined in their natural, uncoated state.

TESCAN MIRA3 FEG SEM

reference workstation of TESCAN ltd. A fully PC controlled FE SEM intended for both – for high vacuum as well as for low vacuum operations. Outstanding optical properties, flicker-free digital image with super clarity.
