Boulder Electron Microscopy Services is located in the Department of Molecular,
Cellular, and Developmental Biology at the University of Colorado.
The Boulder Facility has expertise with a variety of cellular specimen preparations
and image analysis to study the three-dimensional structure of cells and tissues.
Techniques for rapid-freezing and freeze-substitution of samples,
immunolabeling, serial-sectioning and high-resolution electron
tomography are employed and advanced in the facility.
The primary imaging tools of this facility are two FEI Tecnai
intermediate voltage electron microscopes operating at 200,000
and 300,000 volts.
