Since 1988, NDSU's Electron Microscopy Center has been housed in a 3500-square-foot wing of the USDA Northern Crop Science Laboratory.
The central portion of the laboratory, with high-velocity stainless-steel fume hoods at one end, accommodates sample preparation. Surrounding the preparation area are a conference room, staff offices, rooms designed specifically for installation and operation of electron microscopes (with isolated centrally plumbed water and nitrogen lines, etc.) and micro-computed tomography, and space for support equipment and storage.
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 variety of light microscopes and complete secure 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.
