July 29th, 2014 – Biological EM Sample Preparation Tutorial

NCSU’s Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) along with the Center for Electron Microscopy is giving a lecture on transmission electron microscopy (TEM) sample preparation for biological samples followed by instrument demonstrations. It is designed to showcase the available capabilities for biological sample preparation and observation available to the NCSU community. It is meant for new users and those interested in learning about biological sample preparation for electron microscopic examination. The course is a 2 hour lecture given by Valerie Lapham (Center for Electron Microscopy) and Roberto Garcia (AIF) on Tuesday Morning (9:30 am to 11:45 am) with a break in between. There will be demonstrations in the afternoon that you must sign up for to attend.

This lecture will cover the following topics:

1. Biological Sample Preparation for SEM.

2. Biological Sample Preparation for TEM.

3. Ultramicrotomy and Cryo-Ultramicrotomy.

After completion of this course, the attendee will understand the processing and characterization facilities that are available to them for biological samples and have a better understanding of the sample preparation the is involved with biological samples.
