Electron Microscopy Unit (EMBI) is a core facility that provides services for biological electron microscopy. We belong to the Cell and Tissue Dynamics Research Program  at the Institute of Biotechnology, and Helsinki BioImaging (HBI) research infrastructure platform of the Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE).  

We are also part of Biocenter Finland Biological imaging network, and provide nationwide technology services on advanced electron microscopy techniques. We belong to Euro-BioImaging Advanced Light Microcopy Finnish Node.

Due to corona outbreak, EMBI functions with limited capacity. Sample preparation services can be requested by sending e-mail to embi-staff@helsinki.fi. Microscopes can be reserved via OpenIris electronic reservation system. Please note the following practices to safe use of our facility:

  • Only one person / microscope room is recommended.  We can give short troubleshooting sessions, solve acute technical problems, and train new users one person at the time. Use of face masks is expected from everyone in the facility.

  • Break room is reserved for EMBI staff only.

  • EMBI staff cleans equipment in shared use before use.​
