ALERT

ATTENTION ⚠️

In Observance of a U.S. Holiday Agilent Cross Lab/ iLab Operations Software Support Help Desk will be closed during U.S. hours on Wednesday June 19th, 2024. We will resume regular U.S. support hours on Thursday June 20th, 2024. EU and APAC Support will remain open during this time. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone and we will prioritize those requests first.

UTSA Kleberg Advanced Microscopy Center

 About Us

KAMC (Kleberg Advanced Microscopy Center (KAMC) (utsa.edu) houses state-of-the-art instruments in electron microscopy and other advanced characterization equipment. The center supports world-class research in nanotechnology, biology, chemistry, and materials sciences. Our facility includes an aberration-corrected microscope in the STEM mode JEOL ARM 200F with a spatial resolution of 78 picometers. High-resolution electron microscopes such as a field emission gun JEOL 2010F and a STEM Hitachi S5500 as well as probe microscopes and X-ray diffraction. The Center is focused on high-resolution imaging, electron diffraction, electron tomography, and spectroscopy. In addition, the center has capabilities for in situ electron microscopy.

Core Policies

Instrument Training

  1. All users must undergo training on the use of instrumentation before having access to the facility. The amount of training will vary depending on user experience.  
  2.  The core also offers personal in-depth training in methods of image processing and analysis using data acquired by the user. While this level of training is not required to obtain independent access to instrumentation, it is highly recommended. All training is done by appointment and requests should be made via iLab --> Request Service--> Instrument Training--> Select Instrument of Choice
  3.  Upon the completion of training, an internal user will be granted access to the main entrance door and to each room housing the instrumentation for which the user is trained to use independently.
  4.  Under no circumstances should an authorized user lend their ID card to another individual or swipe their ID card to grant the unauthorized user access to the imaging center. Any unauthorized access to instrumentation will result in the suspension of all user privileges.
  5.  All work areas should be left clean, regardless if another user is to come on the system following your reserved time slot.
  6.  Data is NOT indefinitely stored on the local acquisition computer. It is uploaded regularly to our dedicated server and removed from the microscope computer. Data management is a component of user training.
