A to W Basic Course in Electron Microscopy
Use the Transmission, Scanning Electron Microscopes, Combine Light and EM images and learn when to apply these techniques!
In recent years, Electron Microscopy has rapidly developed as a powerful research tool for high-resolution imaging achieving atomic resolutions and combining light and electron microscopy (CLEM). During this course, you will be introduced to all these novel developments. You will learn to use both transmission (TEM) as well as scanning electron microscopes (SEM) with different detectors. You will perform classical techniques for specimen preparation, like resin embedding of cells and tissues and negative staining of small structures like virus particles, as well as cryo-techniques for both TEM and SEM. The course will also include tips and tricks to perform CLEM.
