Cryo Transmission Electronic Microscopy (Cryo-TEM)
Cryo Transmission Electron Microscopy is a microscopy technique, using the Tranmission Electron Microscopy to observe specimens under cryo temperature conditions.
How does it work?
Specimens are flash frozen to produce a thin film of vitreous ice allowing a sample to be viewed under the electron microscope without the need for fixation, drying or staining.
The sample is viewed in a near native state without the distortions introduced by traditional EM methods.
Biological molecules; virology; nanotechnology; micelles; vesicles; emulsions.
Sample Handling Requirements:
Samples must be in aqueous suspension and contain particles less than 500nm thick.
SEM, Standard TEM, Tomography.
JEOL 2200 TEM, JEOL 2011 LaB6 TEM both cryo-capable with state of the art Gatan digital imaging.
