Electron Microscopy Services Laboratory

The Electron Microscopy Service Laboratory (EMSL) is the only functional service laboratory in UPLB that caters to the needs of researchers, students, government and private institutions for ultrastructure analysis. EMSL specializes in biological sample preparation for both scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), needed prior to digital imaging of the samples under the electron microscope. The laboratory is open for collaboration and provides technical assistance to researchers and industries in the field of biological sciences, material science and other related fields. Other services also being offered include sputter coating, Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis and light microscopy.
