Electron Microscopy Facility - KSU

Manhattan, Kansas, US

The Nanotechnology Innovation Center of Kansas State (NICKS) hosts an electron microscopy (EM) facility located within the College of Veterinary Medicine on Denison Avenue. This facility can be used to help improve the scientific output of Kansas State University researchers, while providing faculty, students and staff with guidance for EM research.

The facility can conduct both transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and a scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

  • For TEM, there is a FEI Tecnai G2 Spirit BioTWIN that provides a 0.34 nm resolution, 120Kv and a GATAN digital imaging system with a HAADF detector for STEM imaging and an Oxford detector <135 eV for elemental analysis.
  • For SEM, there is a Hitachi S-3500N scope that provides a 3.0 nm resolution and also equipped with an Oxford detector <135 eV for elemental analysis.

“Our new EM facility has all the necessary equipment for proper sample fixation, processing, sectioning and visualization for TEM and SEM,” said Dr. Nancy Monteiro-Riviere, university distinguished professor and director of NICKS. “The EM facility also offers analysis for a variety of samples from biological tissues, body fluid, bacteria, viruses and samples from other scientific fields. Applications include cell biology, structural biology, soft matter and nanomaterials, nanoparticles and other fields of nanotechnology where one requires nano level imaging.”
