Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility

The Stanford Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility is dedicated to providing the equipment and expertise necessary for the Stanford community to access Cryo-EM.  Recent advances in detector technology and computational processing have moved Cryo-EM into a realm where sub-nanometer resolutions are routinely achieved and atomic resolution is possible (see “The Revolution will not be Crystallized”).  The Cryo-EM facility operates an FEI Tecnai F20 electron microscope equipped with a Gatan K2 summit direct detection device.  In addition we have support lab space for preparation of negative stained or vitrified samples. 

Interested parties should contact Dave Bushnell ( to discuss their particular project.
