1. Sample preparation system 2. Cryo-Transfer system
Cryo-TEM is used by structural biologists to solve structures at atomic resolution. Through the examination of a frozen-hydrated specimen in vitreous (non-crystalline) ice, the specimen ultrastructure, buffer and ligand distribution from its native state are maintained. Cryo-TEM can be used to study viruses, small organelles, and macromolecular biological complexes, as well as molecular interactions in supramolecular assemblies or machines.
