"Cryo transmission electron microscopy (cryo-TEM) is increasingly becoming a mainstream technology for studying the architecture of cells, viruses and protein assemblies at near atomic resolution to reveal new functional processes and molecular interactions. Cryo-TEM is a powerful technique that can provide the three dimensional structures of large protein complexes that are more challenging to determine by other biophysical techniques including X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy.
The system is one of the second generation (G2) series of microscopes that use a thermally assisted field emission gun. The system is also equipped with a Gatan CCD camera. Typical applications: Materials sciences, Nanotechnology Semiconductor Life sciences."
