Since 1988, NDSU's Electron Microscopy Center has been housed in the USDA Northern Crop Science Laboratory, occupying a 3500-square-foot wing designed specifically for electron microscopy.

The central portion of the laboratory is designed for sample preparation with stainless-steel fume hoods at one end.  Surrounding the preparation area are rooms for confocal light microscopy, ultramicrotomy, and water circulators-chillers; a conference room, offices for the research specialists and the director; and rooms designed for installation and operation of electron microscopes (with isolated centrally plumbed water and nitrogen lines, etc.) and micro-computed tomography.

The EM Center is equipped with two transmission electron microscopes, two scanning electron microscopes with energy dispersive x-ray capabilities, micro-computed tomography (microCT), and a confocal scanning light microscope, plus brightfield and darkfield light microscopes and complete image-handling capability.  The NDSU Microscopy Center is staffed by experienced scientists with demonstrated knowledge and expertise in techniques required for successful completion of your research objectives.
