Priority is placed for RU projects. Non-RU projects may be accepted depending on capacity and availability of device and/or EMRC staff.
Note: Examples of typical experiments: The following examples are provided as guidance for budget planning:
1. Conventional TEM: discussion (1hr) + tissue process (~8hr) + cutting sections (~1hr/sample) + staining + scope time
2. Conventional SEM: discussion (1hr) + tissue process (4-8hr) + coating + scope time
3. Immuno EM: discussion (1hr) + Immuno-staining variable) + tissue process (~8hr) + cutting sections (1hr/sample) + staining + scope time
4. Negative staining: discussion (1hr) + glow discharge (20 min) + negative staining + scope time
5. Training of operation of EM: variable based on users past experience and own capabilities
*”Labor” includes but is not limited to the following items:
Processing tissue/cell for TEM or SEM
Immuno-EM
Negative staining
Cryo-EM Preparation
Staining
Use of supporting device: Critical Point Dryer, Ion Sputter, Bio Wave, Evaporator
