In 2008 there was at least one - an electron microscope in Karachi's Jinnah Post Graduate Medical College was not being used, according to this report. I also find other publications by Pakistani research institutes that involve electron microscopes, but they may have traveled abroad to perform the actual scanning.
Electron Microscopes are scientific instruments that use a beam of highly energetic electrons to examine material objects on a very fine scale. This examination can yield the surface features of the objects, the shape and size of the particles making up the object at very high magnification and resolution.
