Talos Arctica™  by Thermo Fisher Scientific (formerly FEI Company) – fully automated transmission electron microscope designed for rapid screening and mid-resolution data collection of frozen-hydrated samples.talos-arctica

  • Electron source Schottky X-FEG using accelerated voltage of 200 kV
  • Falcon III detector operated through the EPU software for automated data collection.
  • Robotic loading of up to 12 frozen samples for increased throughput.
  • Automated data collection mode enabling long unattended operation.
  • Volta Phase plate for increased phase contrast.

The instrument is set up to collect data for single particle electron cryo-microscopy (Cryo-EM). Data collection for electron cryo-tomography (ECT) will also be possible.

Titan Krios™ (soon to be installed) by Thermo Fisher Scientific (formerly FEI Company) is a state-of-the-art fully automated transmission electron  microscope for rapid, stable, high-resolution data collection on frozen-hydrated samples.

The instrument will be set up to collect data for single particle electron cryo-microscopy (Cryo-EM). Data collection for electron cryo-tomography (ECT) will also be possible.

Vitrobot by Thermo Fisher Scientific (formerly FEI Company) enables highly automated and reproducible vitrification process for sample preparation.
