Cell & Tissue Imaging Platform

Electron microscopy


The Electron Microscopy platform is under the responsability of three teams with complementary expertise including cellular electron microscopy (G. Raposo, UMR 144); molecular electron microscopy (D. Lévy, UMR 168); 3D-electron microscopy. The equipment consists in 4 electron microscopes and several intruments for sample preparation (cryostats, ultramicrotomes…). Technical approaches accessible within the platform:

  • Cellular 2D and 3D (tomography) electron microscopy of resin-embebded samples
  • Cellular sample preparation (resin-embedded, immunolabelling, Tokuyasu)
  • 2D and 3D cryo-electron microscopy of biomimetic samples (Fig. A, B)
  • 2D and 3D electron microscopy of negatively stained samples
