New ULS Equipment - ThermoFisher Glacios 200 kV Cryo-electron Microscope

25 Aug 2023

Equipment update

The University Research Facility in Life Sciences (ULS) is excited to announce that the ThermoFisher Glacios 200 kV Cryo-electron Microscope (Cryo-EM) is open to users. The Glacios system is equipped with the latest Falcon 4i direct electron detector, which delivers higher image quality and shorter total image acquisition time than previous models. The system is an essential piece of equipment for the whole cryo-EM workflow, as it allows researchers to verify sample quality with regard to the biochemistry and vitrification. Applications of the Glacios system include single-particle analysis (SPA), micro-electron diffraction (MicroED), and cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) workflows.


In addition, two sets of ThermoFisher Vitrobot Plunge-freezing Systems are also available to support sample vitrification for subsequent cryo-EM and cryo-ET workflows.


If you have any inquiries about the Glacios 200 kV Cryo-EM or the Vitrobot Plunge-freezing Systems, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Sirui Li or Dr Harvey Chan of the ULS.
