LMCB - MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology


The electron microscopy (EM) laboratory is a collaborative unit, specialising in cell biological EM since the opening of the LMCB in 1993. Withstate-of-the-art specimen preparation and imaging technologies, and two experienced researchers, we support the needs of the LMCB groups in all their EM research.

We have experience using a wide range of electron microscopy techniques as well as experience working with a broad range of model organisms.

We provide a full range of support for LMCB researchers throughout the entire timeline of their projects, from planning experiments through to training, sample preparation, imaging and data analysis. The support given is tailored to each project, dependent on the technical difficulty of the experiments and the experience of the researcher. This can vary from advice and technical support for the more experienced, full training in required techniques and the equipment use for the less experiences researchers or the undertaking of the EM projects ourselves, a collaborative endeavor as part of the ongoing research.
