Basic Course in SEM and TEM,
1 ECTS, 20 – 22 September 2017
This course covers fundamental theory and operational principles as well as specimen preparation techniques for scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM/TEM).
The aim of this EM Basic Course is to provide general and basic introduction to PhD students and postdocs, who would like to work with EM methods in their projects. We accept participants from all research departments and universities and have no specific focus on research topics. This course includes lectures, laboratory demonstrations and EM operation demonstrations.
The TEM session will explain the preparation of EM grids, negative stain of proteins, plastic embedding of samples and sample sectioning by ultra-microtome. The SEM session covers both biological and materials science samples. We will not have time to work on participants' samples during the course, but you are welcome to use the facility after undertaking a proper EM training. Please, only apply if you have time to participate for 3 full days.
Lectures at KBC “Glasburen” and laboratory demonstrations at UCEM, 5th, 6th floor + EM building at KBC, Umeå University.
