Building works for the central administration of the Ministry of Environment, Energy and the Sea and the Department of Housing and Sustainable Living: realization of false ceilings and drywall
This contract is for the supply, delivery, installation and commissioning (including training) of a transmission electron microscope and sample preparation devices cryo-methods, new, to the Department Microscopy of the University of Tours.
This first batch corresponds to the electron microscope itself, and the associated image capture system.
The frozen samples in their native state study requires, besides adapting the microscope, the acquisition of specific accessories:
- Subject cryo-holder. And cryo-transfer system
- pumping station.
This lot covers the purchase of an ultramicrotome, designed for the production of thin sections and ultra-fine preparations of biological samples or materials not only at room temperature but also at very low temperature (cryo-ultramicrotomy) .
The system will especially allow the production of usable cuts in technical Tokuyasu called << >> and that << >> CEMOVIS (Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Vitreous Sections), and be equipped accordingly.
This lot covers the purchase of a high pressure freezing system ( "High Pressure Freezing" or Hpf). It is intended for freezing samples as part of preparation techniques and special TEM observation, such as cold substitution ( "Freeze Substitution") CEMOVIS and correlative microscopy "Clem" in particular.
elemental analysis system energy selection (Eds)
The follow-up to this lot of consultation are conditioned by the validation of the STEM option in Lot 1.
