short CV

We are histotechnologists, electron microscopy specialists.

We are experts in transforming fresh and fixed biological samples (cells, tissue biopsies, organs, organisms) semi-thin and ultra-thin sections to be viewed under a transmission electron microscope.

The techniques to achieve this are various and choice of the most appropriate one will depend on your goal and will vary according to the type of sample.

Be sure to consult with us prior to conducting your EM-dedicated experiments.
