Science Center Microscopy Facility

Electron microscopes are significantly improving the experiences of students, both in the classroom and in their research.

The Science Center Microscopy Facility was formally organized when the electron microscopes and several research-quality light microscopes from several science departments were designated to be part of an interdisciplinary facility. These microscopes and their ancillary equipment are open to all members of the college.

Who can use the facility?

Anyone associated with Mount Holyoke College, faculty, staff and students, are welcome users of any of the microscopes.  Members of the Five Colleges are welcome visitors and may use any of the microscopes as time allows.

Appropriate training is required and is available either through one of the formal courses or by individual sessions.

For short term projects, the microscopes can be used with assistance of facility staff.
