Electron Microscopy Made Easy


EMtrix is a remotely accessible electron microscopy facility located within the Division of Biological Sciences at The University of Montana. Our facility supports diverse research and teaching activities that require the use of transmission or scanning electron microscopy (TEM, SEM).

Principal equipment includes a Hitachi 7100 TEM and a Hitachi S-4700 cold field emission SEM. Both microscopes can be accessed remotely via the internet.

Our fully equipped specimen preparatory laboratory includes ultramicrotomes, knifemakers, a sputter coater, a critical point dryer, vaccuum evaporators, embedding ovens and light microscopes.

The facility is staffed by a professional electron microscopy technician, available to assist in experimental design, sample preparation, and interpretation of data.

Whether on campus or across the globe, we look forward to assisting with all your EM needs.


Major support for the facility is provided by the University of Montana and the National Center for Research Resources (5P20RR016455-11) and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (8 P20 GM103474-11) from the National Institutes of Health.
