The students will learn
- the basics/theory of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM)
- different sample preparation methods for SEM
- to operate our scanning electron microscope
- to operate our critical point drying device
- to perform sputter coating
- to perform negative staining TEM
- to operate our transmission electron microscope
- to perform immuno-labelling for light microscopy
The profile module "Techniques in light microscopy and electron microscopy" runs over a period of 10 days, distributed over three weeks. On the first day, seminars will introduce into the theory, i.e. of SEM and TEM. The remaining 9 days are for practice. The main topics of the course are: basic principles and functioning of light and electron microscopes, sample preparation, fixation, low temperature SEM, low vacuum SEM, negative staining TEM, and immuno-labelling for light microscopy.
