We provide light and electron microscopy and imaging services for teaching and research across the NDSU campus and beyond. To help defray the cost of equipment, supplies, service contracts, and salaries that are not covered by NDSU, we operate on a "for fee" basis.
We will be pleased to meet with you at no charge to discuss your research/imaging needs and prepare a detailed cost estimate to facilitate your planning.
Our microscopy services include fixation, dehydration, infiltration, embedding, ultrathin sectioning, staining, critical-point drying, and evaporative and sputter coating for electron microscopy; light microscopy assistance; and complete film-based and digital image acquisition and processing including preparation of journal figures.
Groups and individuals of all ages are welcome to visit the laboratory; we will be happy to tailor a tour appropriate for you. Please call or e-mail us to schedule.
We also provide remote use of the JEOL JSM-6490LV scanning electron microscope from your classroom! Contact us for assistance.
