FEI Talos Arctica
The FEI Talos Arctica is a 200 KV cryogenic transmission electron microscope coupled with an autoloader which allows users to load up to 12 specimens at a time. It is designed to work around the clock with an automatic liquid nitrogen refiller and automatic data acquisition software packages, e.g. EPU. A direct detection camera, Falcon III, helps to obtain atomic or near-atomic resolution data in single particle Cryo-EM. The specimen stage allows high tilt series of tomography data collection which makes the microscope highly versatile.
FEI Vitrobot Mark IV
The FEI Vitrobot Mark IV is a semi-automatic specimen freezing apparatus which provides accurate control of environment temperature, humidity, blotting conditions, and freezing velocity. This system makes Cryo-EM specimen preparation highly reliable and reproducible.
The Gatan CP3 is a specimen preparation instrument which provides double side and single side blotting as well as control of the environment temperature and humidity. Single side blotting may be advantageous for some specimen preparation such as cells grown on EM grids for tomography study.
EMS 150T ES
The EMS 150T ES is a sputter coater which can be used to coat thin carbon/metal layer(s) with precisely controlled thickness.
