Falcon 3 Direct Electron Detector

The Titan Krios is part of the instrumental infrastructure of SupraFAB. This microscope is mainly used for single particle data acquisition. Its highly automated acquisition techniques facilitate 24/7 operation and high throughput production of superior quality images suited for image processing and high resulution 3d reconstruction of protein complexes.

The microscope is mainly used for supramolecular assembly characterisations and in structural studies of virus and virus-like particle interaction with functionaly tailored capsids. The stable goniometer and stage also facilitate cryo-tomographic investigations even in batch mode.

Ceta 16M CMOS Camera

The L120C is our most robust working horse and can be used even autonomically by skilled (trained) users. Due to its side entry it is suitable for conventional (heavy metal stained) samples as well as for cryogenic TEM. The resolution of the Ceta camera satisfies the demands for high quality TEM characterisations.

This microscope is a real diva and needs the delicate hands of an proficient microscopist. Nevertheless, the mechanical control of some of its functions provides a direct experience of electron microscopy not tangible on modern completely software driven microscopes.
