Instrument name: JEOL JEM-1400 Flash 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-1400 Flash at Smith College is equipped with an AMT XR401 sCMOS camera. Image acquisition is easy using AMT Capture Engine software. Training includes a lecture, a demonstration, and hands-on microscope instruction.
