Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy

The Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy (MCEM) is a central Monash University Technology Research Platform. It provides a world-class capability in electron microscopy to enable researchers to solve major scientific challenges. MCEM conducts innovative research in electron microscopy, and provides advanced instrumentation, expertise and training to researchers from across the university, government and industry sectors. A brochure provides a small snapshot of just some of the resulting research impact. MCEM together with the Monash Ramaciotti Centre for Cryo-Electron Microscopy form the Victorian node of Microscopy Australia (formerly AMMRF). For further information about MCEM please download the MCEM User Manual.


Introduction of the iLab booking system has been delayed as MCEM is currently closed to users due to Covid 19 restrictions (see Covid 19 Update below). Even so, all current and new users are encouraged to register with iLab and to submit their New Project Request. Processing of New Project Requests has been delayed by the need to respond to the Covid 19 situation. Current Projects continuing without change will be given a new iLab Project number. Meetings to discuss new Projects will be arranged in May and will be held via Zoom.

MCEM staff are available to carry out work classified by Monash as "Essential" or Priority research (see Request for MCEM Access during COVID-19 Restrictions form below).
