The Electron Microscopy Core Facility (EMCF) provides technical and scientific support for transmission and scanning electron microscopy to all members of the University of Heidelberg. Scientific staff with strong background in diverse fields of cell biology will help to optimize biological sample preparation, which is the key to successful electron microscopy, and thereby assist you to solve the scientific questions your are interested in. Combining not only technical resources but also know how is our aim at EMCF! We are also the link to other, more specialized EM groups on campus and these groups will try to help, if we can not support your project sufficiently.

We use various techniques of sample preparation to image biological material at high resolution. This often allows to link structure and function and has helped to answer numerous biological questions in the past. Direct identification of subcellular structures helps to supplement and confirm light microscopical studies and provides information which is otherwise very hard to get. Come and talk to us and find out how your experiments can benefit from electron microscopy.
