Multidisciplinary Microscopy Facility

The Multidisciplinary Microscopy Facility is centered in room 040 of Myers Hall, home of the Indiana Molecular Biology Institute. The facility operates and maintains the following instruments:

    1. A JEOL 5800LV scanning electron microscope with a digital image archive system.
    2. A JEOL 1010 transmission electron microscope.

We maintain all necessary equipment for the preparation of samples including stereoscopes, polymerization ovens and ultramicrotomes for transmission electron microscopy, critical point dryer and sputter coater for scanning electron microscopy, and microtomes for light microscopy. The facility is open for use by experienced scientists from Indiana University and visiting researchers. We will provide instruction on the use of any of the equipment for new users and can do either collaborative or contract work.

Sample preparation equipment available: Leica Ultracut T Ultramicrotome, Sorvall Porter-Blum MT 2B, Denton DV502 Vacuum Evaporator, Balzers Critical Point Dryer, Polaron Sputter Coater, and all other standard preparation equipment.
