The Electron Microscopy Unit is a central facility in Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University Health System. Besides Transmission (five) and Scanning (three) Electron Microscopes (TEM/SEM), the Unit also houses an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), Bioscope II (combination of AFM and Optical microscopy) with a complete Image Analysis System for diversification of microscopy techniques employed in medical research.
Personalized training is provided for approved applicants, from sample preparation to using the electron microscope. Upon completion of training, users are allowed to work independently in the Unit. A nominal sum is charged for the training and use of the various instruments.
The EM Unit aims to provide the best possible facilities in terms of ultrastructural imaging technology to researchers. Besides providing facilities, the Unit also engages in collaborating research projects. Examples of some collaborations partners include AVA, SERI, EHI, SGH, TTSH, NIE. Electron Microscopy Unit has also co-organized many scientific seminars and workshops with vendors to introduce new equipment and technology.
