The Central Electron Microscope Facility (CEMF) is a UConn Health Center-supported research facility providing electron microscopy research service for faculty, students and extramural users. The CEMF occupies approximately 1,800 sq. ft of space on B level of the main UConn Health Center building (rooms AB027 and AB031). The CEMF has two transmission electron microscopes (TEMs), a Philips CM10 and a Hitachi H-7650 equipped with a digital camera, and a JEOL 6320F high-resolution field emission scanning electron microscope (SEM). Sample preparation instruments include ultramicrotomes, vacuum evaporator, sputter coater, critical point dryer and ion beam coater. The electron microscopes and other instruments also are available for use by experienced faculty or students. Training is available on an individual basis or in a formal graduate course offered every other year.
