With a focused ion beam instrument (Zeiss, NVision 40), two transmission electron microscopes (JEM 2200FS, dedicated for cryo TEM; and JEM 2010 dedicated for materials science TEM, both JEOL) and plenty of preparation tools, it offers a direct access to electron microscopic techniques in the field of biology as well as materials science.
The facility is unique within Switzerland as it also allows the investigation of radioactive materials.
We provide opportunity of training and service for the members. Members have first priority regarding the availability of beam time at the instruments. Also non-members are welcome at the facility. For non-members the use of the instruments is charged on an hourly basis (fees).
