The Electron Microscopy Resource Laboratory (EMRL) at Penn is a research facility dedicated to ultrastructure analysis of biological samples by electron microscopy (EM). With a team of experienced professional staff and state-of-the-art sample preparation and imaging equipment, the EMRL offers users a full spectrum of both transmission EM and scanning EM services. These services include: specimen preparation (including high pressure freezing, chemical fixation, microwave tissue processing, and sectioning of cells and tissues or preparation of non-cellular materials), operation of equipment, data acquisition, data interpretation, and training on all aspects of EM analysis. Operational costs are covered from fee-for-service offerings, the Perelman School of Medicine, and the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics.
