Electron Microscopy - Complete TEM
Service includes: Processing and embedding of fixed cell pellets, following our standard protocols. One embedded block from each sample will be ultra-thin sectioned and stained for microscopic examination.
At least two hundred individual cell sections will be examined from each sample. The cells will be characterized morphologically and ultrastructural features will be documented using high resolution photography.
The presence or absence of virus particles will also be documented. If virus particles are present, the cells will be evaluated for the type of virus particles associated with the cells, and the percentage of cells associated with virus particles will be documented.
Final results include six to ten representative electron micrographs, and a final report documenting sample observations, analysis of the results, and materials and methods. Included is a CD containing the digital images of the samples, as well as the original negatives.
