Microscopy Service

The Confocal and Transmission Electron Microscopy is a newly-created Core Facility, conceived to fulfill the increasing demand of the researchers in this field. The service is initially aimed to organize, handle, optimize and promote the use of the large equipment of microscopy already available at the institute. The service is designed to ease the access of the EEZ researchers to these equipments, particularly for the observation of samples. Furthermore, standard preparation of samples prior to the observation will be also facilitated in some extent. The service will be available for both Internal and External users.
