The Electron Microscopy (EM) Unit is a central core facility as well as a research laboratory. It is available to CNIO researchers and the wider research community, providing investigators with instruments and support for Transmission Electron Microscopy analysis. The Unit offers negative staining and cryo-EM specimen preparation techniques for proteins, protein complexes and vesicles. We also give training to regular users on the use of our equipment and provide further guidance regarding specimen preparation.
