SUMMER I 1999 COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT - Transmission Electron Microscopy
(BIO. 221-Section BA)

NASSAU COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Garden City, Long Island, New York

A five week, Summer Session I 1999 semester, course in Biological
Transmission Electron Microscopy is being offered by the Biology Department
of Nassau Community College. This is a 4 credit course offered four days
per week (Monday through Thursday) between the hours of 8:00 am and NOON.
Classes will begin on May 24 and end on June 24, 1999.

This is a "hands-on" course emphasizing biological specimen preparation,
ultra-thin sectioning involving block trimming, glass knifemaking and
operation of the ultramicrotomes (Sorvall MT-2B and LKB Ultrotome III),
thick and ultra-thin section mounting and contrast staining (UA and Pb
citrate), grid support films (formvar, carbon), student operation of the
TEM (Hitachi HS-8, Philips EM 300) and production of electron micrographs
through the process of black & white photography, and electron micrograph
analysis. Students will work on a chosen sample(s) with the goal of
producing a portfolio of high quality TEM photomicrographs of that
sample(s).

The course is widely transferrable and the cost per credit is reasonable at
$86 per credit (for Nassau County residents or New York State residents
with a certificate of residency).
