THE STEM (Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope) FACILITY
at Brookhaven National Laboratory
The STEM used to be an NIH Research Resource and as such was available to outside users with appropriate projects free of charge. We have lost this support, but continue to operate as a User Facility on a Fee-For-Service basis.
We are updating our web page.
See it (reload or refresh) http://www.biology.bnl.gov/stem/stem.html for details.
PURPOSE OF THIS PAGE
Our web page (link given above) has essentially all the useful information about the facility and its use.
We will try to use this page for transient information, such as announcements and "news".
A NEW POSTING
STEM Users who use the STEM PCMass programs for analyses and viewing, should be using a relatively recent version, say PCMass28 or some PCMass29. The newer versions are much more user-friendly and also have more tutorials.
There should be a new, complete, PCMass29 soon.
A GOLD-LABELING WORKSHOP
Was held Sept. 11-13, 2007
Organized by Dr. James Hainfeld
Most users mail (ON Express) their samples. Frozen samples, in a well-insulated package with lots of dry ice, will stay frozen for many days -- long enough to clear customs if they are from abroad. A sample package is shown below (held by Joe and Beth):
