This page links to sample electron microscopy images that have been digitised to a new format that allows the viewer to both zoom and move the image on the screen as you would with an online map programs and online virtual slides. These images have also been optimised and formatted for viewing on all mobile devices. Special thanks to Dartmouth EM for making their images available for general use.

UNSW Students please note these are not the Histology and Pathology Virtual Slide Set.
