The Cell Imaging Centre is primarily equipped to benefit research scientists within the faculty of medicine and dentistry at the University of Alberta, and is also available to accommodate users from other academic institutes and commercial companies.
Hitachi S-4800 FE-STEM: This scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) can achieve 30X to 800,000X magnification with a cold field emission gun at 0.5 to 30 kv accelerating voltage. The STEM also can detect transmitted electrons using a TEM grid samples as well as secondary electron (SE) and back scattered electron (BSE) for dried samples.
Purchased from Quorum Technologies with funds from the Alberta Institute of Virology CFI grant, our spinning disk confocal has an Olympus IX-81 motorized microscope base.
Hitachi H-7650 TEM: This transmission electron microscope (TEM) can achieve 70X to 200,000X magnification with high contrast mode at 60 to 120 kv accelerating voltage. The TEM also can achieve maximum of 500,000X magnification in the high resolution mode. The 16 megapixel camera mounted in the low-mount position (Advanced Microscopy Techniques) of the TEM generates very high quality images of ultrastructure.
Applied Precision’s OMX super resolution microscope that uses structured illumination to break the diffraction barrier.
