Welcome to UMass Amherst Electron Microscopy

The UMass Amherst Electron Microscopy Center is located in the Silvio O. Conte National Center for Polymer Research(link is external) at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst(link is external). It is equipped with several Transmission (TEM) and Scanning (SEM) Electron Microscopes as well as related sample preparation equipment for the use of the UMass community as well as external customers.
While the the EM facility located in Conte originally focused on soft materials it developed to a interdisciplinary campus-wide resource for a wide range of materials and life sciences research especially through the consolidation of the Polymer W.M. Keck Electron Microscopy Facility and the Central Biological Electron Microscopy Facility in 2014 .
