Welcome to Umeå Core Facility for Electron Microscopy (UCEM)

Umeå Core Facility for Electron Microscopy or UCEM is a joint resource for research and higher education in electron microscopy techniques. The Core Facility is a USER facility for structural and chemical characterization of materials at micro- and nanometer length scales. The aims of the Core Facility are (1) providing high-quality service and technical in scanning and transmission electron microscopy, (2) conducting basic and practical courses, workshops and training on electron microscopy, and (3) assisting in cross-disciplinary research activities on the development and applications of advanced methodologies in electron microscopy and microanalysis.

The major financial contributions to the Core Facility are Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS), Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR), Chemical Biological Centre (KBC), Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC), Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Science and Technology, Västerbotten County Council, Kempe Foundation and Berzelius Centre for Forest Biotechnology.
