is a key instrument for detailed study of viruses. Viruses are cell-dependent microscopic infectious agents for reproduction, measuring 0.02 to 0.75 microns. The family to which the monkeypox virus belongs has a size of between 230 nm and 270 nm and, although with some stains can be observed under the conventional microscope, the ideal is to use an electron microscope, since it has a greater power of resolution and makes it possible to see and study the structure of the virus for the realization of vaccines, for example.
To make the monkeypox vaccine, the same steps are followed as those made with conventional vaccines. During the elaboration of these, it is indispensable the use of the electron microscope to evaluate them, which is why it is a team that should not be lacking in biomedicine laboratories.
