Location: Basement (Room B11), Queen Square House.
The electron microscopy unit provides expert services for the preparation of semithin resin sections, ultra-thin sections and electron microscopy grids, and teased nerve fibres.
Electron microscopy examinations of the grids are performed by our staff in the Camelia Botnar laboratories at Great Ormond Street hospitals.
