Microanalysis and Imaging Center (MIMIC)

The MTSU Microanalysis and Imaging Center (MIMIC) is a core microscopy center jointly operated by the College of Basic and Applied Sciences and the College of Graduate Studies.

Training in electron microscopy (EM) techniques, including scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and x-ray analysis is obtained by a trio of laboratory courses that are offered every year to undergraduate and graduate students: Scanning Electron Microscopy, BIOL 4290/6290; Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis, BIOL 4360/5360; and Transmission Electron Microscopy, BIOL 4270/6410 . The courses teach sample preparation, instrument theory, and hands on training on the electron microscopes and ancillary equipment.
