Cryo-FIB Milling

Development of this “nano-sandblaster” will facilitate cryo-tomography deep inside cells.

This state-of-the-art facility provides access to the 2017 Nobel-prize winning technology of atomic-resolution single particle cryo-electron microcopy (cryo-EM) and cellular cryo-electron tomography to tackle unanswered questions in structural cell biology and to provide a new understanding of the molecular causes of diseases.
