The Electron Microscope Facility at ACTREC is equipped with JEM 1400 PLUS, a Transmission electron microscope (JEOL, Japan) functioning at 120kV with magnification up to 12,00,000 X and 0.2nm resolution. The facility provides services for research and analysis of biological samples, nanoparticles and other applications.

Current Applications
  • The facility carries out sample preparation for routine electron microscopy, including resin block making (solid tissues, monolayer cell cultures, and cell suspensions) followed by ultrathin sectioning using Leica UC-7 ultramicrotome, contrasting, and acquisition.
  • The facility also carries out negative staining for small particles (<100nm) like bacteriophages, exosomes, nanoparticles, proteins and DNA.
  • The facility provides acquisition of immunogold labelled macromolecules to detect specific localization.
  • The facility provides elemental detection by Bruker EDS system

The major areas of electron microscopy analysis are,

  • Ultrastructure study of cell and tissue,
  • Studying the details at organelle level like mitochondrial changes, ER - mitochondrial interactions, mitochondrial cristae, cell membrane, nuclear architecture, golgi complexes etc.,
  • To check events of autophagy, apoptosis or necroptosis,
  • Characterization of exosomes, bacteriophages and nanoparticles,
  • Uptake and effect of nanoparticles / drugs / radiation on cells or tissue,
  • EDS analysis of nanoparticles
