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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss their particular project.
