Instrument name: JEOL JEM 100XC II Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)
Description: The TEM is used to study morphological features of large molecules, cells, tissues, small organisms, and particles at a resolution of 0.3 nm. Ultrathin sections (~100nm) will need to be cut to study internal features of cells and tissue. Negative staining techniques can be applied to observe large molecules, small organisms, and particles. The JEOL JEM 100XC II at Smith College is equipped with an Olympus Veleta TEM CCD camera. Image acquisition is easy using iTEM software. Training includes a lecture, a demonstration, and hands-on microscope instruction.
