Molecular Electron Microscopy Facility (HMS)

Location: Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, 240 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115

Summary:

The molecular electron microscopy facility at Harvard Medical School is predominantly used for our own research and can therefore not be considered a service facility. We are, however, committed to make our technology available to as many research groups in the community as possible. If you are interested to use molecular electron microscopy, please contact us by phone or email.

Instruments

  • JEOL JFO-3000 laser diffractometer ( Diffractometer )

    "The laser diffractometer is used to evaluate the quality of our electron micrographs and, in the case of two-dimensional crystals, to find well diffracting areas."

  • Philips Tecnai 12 electron microscope ( Electron microscope )

    "This instrument is our workhorse, which is mainly used for negative stain and low-resolution cryo-work. "

    It is "a 120 kV instrument equipped with a Gatan 1k x 1k charge-coupled device (CCD) camera" "equipped with a Gatan low-light camera, compustage, cryo-holders, anti-contamination blades, spot-scan and low-dose software".

  • Philips Tecnai F20 electron microscope ( Electron microscope )

    "With its 200 kV acceleration voltage and its field emission gun, this instrument is well suited for high-resolution imaging."

    It is "a 200 kV instrument with a field emission electron source and a Gatan 2k x 2k CCD camera" "equipped with a Gatan low-light camera, compustage, cryo-holders, anti-contamination blades, spot-scan and low-dose software".

  • Zeiss SCAI scanner ( Film scanner )

    "The scanner is used to digitize our electron micrographs to make them available for digital image processing."
