Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility

Creating super high-definition 3D images of atoms and molecules

Dear users,

We hope you have been staying safe during COVID-19 pandemic. To enhance the safety of users and operators, we have established a remote viewing system.We will send a zoom link before each screening session, and then you will be able to view the microscope monitor from your computer in real-time. In that way, you don't have to be present in the Krios or Arctica room during the screening.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

A joint venture between the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences and the Materials Research Institute, the Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility houses a one-of-a-kind FEI Titan Krios microscope that offers uncompromised data collection for the life sciences while incorporating materials science applications. Specifically, the facility allows for fully-automated atomic-resolution single-particle and high-contrast tomography tilt-series data collection. Additional microscopy components permit a full range of materials science applications, including EELS, STEM, and DPC.
