Electron Microscopy at Ultrastructural BioImaging
The Ultrastructural Bioimaging (UBI) facility at the Institut Pasteur provides state-of-the-art electron microscopy imaging approaches to users from the campus and outside. Samples range from single molecules to whole organisms. They can be observed at the highest resolution possible.
What we do:
Who are we?
13 electron microscopists with expertise covering a broad range of TEM & SEM methodologies.
What we offer:
- Collaboration or Service
- Implementation & Development of new methods
How to get started:
- Come to the weekly Open Desk every Monday morning in the hall of F. Jacob building for informal discussion or email us at email@example.com
- Come and tell us more about your project in our weekly team meeting
- New projects should be requested via our online system PPMS.
All samples with a biosafety level P2/P3 require the submission of a ‘protocol de recherche’ to document the procedure of inactivation.
Certifications and networks:
- UBI is member of the Center for Technological Resources and Reearch (C2RT), centralizing the Technology and Service units (UTechS) and the technological core facilities of Institut Pasteur. Therefore, UBI follows the common C2RT guidelines for best working practices.
