The Multiscale Electron Imaging (METi) platform is a transmission electron microscopy facility within the Centre de Biologie Intégrative de Toulouse (CBI).
This facility is open to both academic and industrial users and offers three types of services. We can prepare samples, provide equipments, develop and manage projects. Our expertise is centered on biology, but projects in other fields (material science, chemistry, geology,…) have been successfully carried out.
The METi is especially involved in the implementation of new technologies designed to prepare and observe samples as close as possible to their native state:
TALOS ARCTICATEM FEG 200 kV equipped with a DDE camera with post-column energy-filter Gatan K3-BioQuantum and phase plate
JEOL 1400TEM 120 kV equipped with CCD camera Gatan Orius SC1000B 11Mpixels
TEM 200 kV equipped with a US1000 camera and a US4000 camera with post-column energy-filter Gatan GIF Quantum
Automatic plunge freezer
LEICA EM ICE
High pressure freezer
Automatic freeze substitution system
Cryoultramicrotome to perform ultrathin section at room temperature or more specifically dedicated for cryosectionning for Tokuyasu or CEMOVIS technique
