The principal goal of the Electron Microscopy (EM) Unit is to offer scientific-technical support to researchers to resolve their scientific questions using different transmission EM techniques. We routinely use cryo-EM and negative staining to prepare samples.  We also perform data collection and help in image processing, through 2D analysis and 3D reconstruction. Support is offered in choosing adequate EM techniques and performing sample preparation. Moreover, we manufacture our own sample supports (EM grids) for better quality control and lower cost.  In addition, we provide the training necessary for the use of our microscopes and auxiliary equipment. More advanced structural studies are generally carried out through research collaboration.
