Cellular electron microscopy has been a key technique for understanding the cell’s core elements and mechanisms since the 1950s. Electron microscopic methods have laid the foundation for a number of Nobel Prizes and have given us much of the basic understanding of human cells’ overall structure, physiology and mechanisms—basically the foundation of all modern medicine.

Access and booking
Please contact facility manager Sergej Masich. We will utilise the central KI core-facility booking system once that is available.
Teaching and training
We will arrange courses and workshops. In the beginning, teaching and hands-on-training on specimen preparation and microscope operation will be provided to smaller groups or on a on-to-one basis.
Prices for service
To be decided but will reflect the relative costs for maintaining the respective instruments. Furthermore, pricing for industry access will attain full-cost coverage.
