Our EM facility provides resources, technology and expertise for studying the ultrastructure of a variety of biological samples as well as materials. Please, visit our image gallery page to see some representative images.

Collaboration with the facility is also highly encouraged. With all the questions please contact Dr. Yaroslav Tsytsyura ( and Mr. Harald Nuesse (
