The Ultrastructural BioImaging unit offers scientific and technical support in electron microscopy for research groups of Institut Pasteur and external institutes. We provide a wide range of sample preparation and imaging techniques and focus on the ultra-structural characterization of pathogens and host-pathogen interactions. Our specialized team helps you decide which methods are best to answer your questions.
All samples with a biosafety level P2/P3 require a ‘protocol de recherche’ to document the procedure of inactivation. The acceptance of this can take some time, depending on the complexity of the samples.
The Ultrastructural BioImaging unit handles approximately 80 projects per year. We encourage big projects to be carried out by a student, technician, or post-doc from the requesting team. They will be instructed accordingly by our team-members.
