Microscopy & Microanalysis Research Laboratory
The Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Laboratory (MMRL) is an interdisciplinary research, teaching and service facility equipped with scanning and transmission electron microscopes, an atomic force microscope, and the ancillary instruments. The facility provides microscopic imaging, X-ray analysis, and specimen preparation services for biological, pharmaceutical, and materials scientific research.
The MMRL consist of four individual microscope rooms, the Histology laboratory, and sample preparation and chemical storage areas. Use of the facility is primarily for university instruction and research at all levels and clients from other universities, foundations and industries. Users of the MMRL can opt for full technical services in microscopic analysis. Graduate- and upper-undergraduate-level training is offered in the operation of electron microscopes, sample preparation, and thick/thin sectioning.
