About EICN:

EICN is operated on the following bases:

  • Assisted Service
  • Self Service

Highly experienced staff provide either assisted services or the necessary trainings on instruments available at EICN.

Seeing molecules, materials, and molecular machineries at atomic resolution and in three-dimension is critical to nanoscience. In order to facilitate this, the Electron Imaging Center for Nanomachines (EICN) was established at the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) through a major instrumentation grant from NIH and support from UCLA. EICN provides advanced electron imaging tools for a broad range of research, covering a scale range from tens of micrometers to angstroms, and delivering valuable structural information for cell biology, microbiology, biomolecular, molecular, and materials sciences. The state-of-the-art EICN facility offers all major electron microscopy (EM) modalities, including:

  • single particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM)
  • cryo-electron tomography (cryoET)
  • cryo-immuno EM
  • single-particle 3D reconstruction
  • 3D tomographic reconstruction
  • ultrathin sectioning (room temperature and cryo)
  • high-pressure freezing
  • freeze-substitution
  • high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR TEM)
  • scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM)
  • energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) analysis for mass and elementary mapping
