The MEMS at Harvard Medical School is a user resource currently available to qualified researchers affiliated with Quad-based labs at HMS. This separate resource offers training and supervision in negative-stain and cryo-transmission electron microscopy. Equipment includes four transmission electron microscopes, two cryo plungers, and negative stain and cryo sample preparation areas. The Tecnai F20 and Polara F30 TEMs are each equipped with Gatan K2 Summit direct electron detectors.
