The OSU Electron Microscopy Facility Host of ChemiSTEM Technology

Consuelo Carbonell-Moore is studying dinoflagellates from Indian Ocean. She currently holds a Courtesy Faculty appointment in the Department of Botany and Plant Pathology.
The Titan TEM has been fully operational since May of 2012. It has four Bruker SDD detectors and a Gatan Tridiem GIF.

And another video focussed on our Industrial side made through our ONAMI partnership.  

The Electron Microscopy Facility at Oregon State University (OSU) is a service facility providing faculty, staff, students, and Industrial collaborators access to electron microscopes and related instrumentation. In addition to an FEI Titan with ChemiSTEM technology, we have staff that are experts in sample preparation and imaging to help you solve your problem. Walk through of the OSU Electron Microscope Facility The facility is supported from the Office of Vice-President for Research and the facility's client colleges. The Facility is located in 145 EM Suite in Linus Pauling Science Center.
