Feb 3, 2014  We are beginning to wind down our operations and will merge the Electron Microscopy operations with the Keck Microscopy Facility.


Tecnai T12 is to be moved to the Keck.
The T12 is down... The T12 chiller has died (20140307) and so the T12 is not available until it is relocated to it's new home at the KECK... Stay tuned...... Persons needing to do TEM work will need to work at the KECK. The JEOL-2000FX is available for use. Please visit the Keck webpage and register there and make arrangements for TEM training.

The JEOL 100s has been shut down.

The JEOL 5400 SEM has been shut down.

The Zeiss 510Meta is still operational. We expect to pass it's administration to another agent (TBD) who will continue operations. This confocal was installed in September 2002 and is under service contract until the end of 2014.

The Nikon E600 Fluorescence system with SpotRT camera are still functioning and available.

Some of the sample prep equipment will be moved and some will not. Ask, or stay tuned.....

Dale expects to move to the KECK at the time that the Tecnai T12 is moved, or before.

PLEASE PLAN AHEAD! We hate to have you disappointed, live by our schedules, and can rarely help walk-ins.  Please call or email for appointments and allow sufficient lead-time for us to get your project on the stack so that the work can happen in the desired time-frame.....
