The Electron Microscopy Core at Houston Methodist is a service and research resource equipped to perform scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, fluorescent microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. The core houses a brand new FEI Nova NanoSEM, Scanning Electron Microscope (FEI Nova NanoSEM), sample processing equipment (sputter-coater) and two Bruker atomic force microscopes – the Catalyst and the MultiMode®. The core staff is available to train and assist with sample preparation and imaging samples. The core is a fee-for-use and fee-for-service facility.
