Highlights of importance and applications of instruments:

The Transmission Electron microscope can image viruses and other plant pathogens. It can also image metallic nano particles. upto 300000 times primary magnification This Variable Pressure Scanning Electron Microscope can be used to image structure of bio materials upto 60000 times primary magnification

Parameters/analysis that can be analysed in the instrument::

Sample dimensions, Size distribution

User instructions for sample preparation:
  1. As the Instrument has Variable Pressure Detector, the samples need to be stuck on 2 sided conducting adhesive copper tape on an aluminium stub. If needed a carbon coat can be done using the Vaccum evaporator to increase controst. Staining using Phospho Tungstic Acid neds to be done for higher magnifications. The imaging can be done immediately.
Parameters that can be analyzed on the instrument/facility:

Nano / Miro structure, morphological
