Bio21: Electron Microscopy Unit
Nanotechnology is an emerging field considered likely to have a major impact on medicine, agriculture and the environment and therefore generate substantial economic benefits in the next decade. Essential requirements are clean rooms for assembly of nanostructures and electron microscopes for imaging the molecular structures, microanalysis of complex materials and nanofabrication of fluidics systems.
The Institute’s $10m Electron Microscopy Unit and clean room is a key facility designed for physical sciences, life sciences and engineering applications. The unit is equipped with five state-of-the-art electron microscopes, available to academic and industry users on a fee for use basis.
