Cryo-EM

National facility

Cryo-EM

The Cryo-EM Swedish National Facility offers access to state-of-the-art equipment and expertise in single particle cryo-EM and cryo-tomography (cryo-ET). The Facility has two nodes: at SciLifeLab in Stockholm and at Umeå University. The Facility is supported by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the Family Erling Persson Foundation, the Kempe Foundations, SciLifeLab, Stockholm University and Umeå University.

SERVICES

SciLifeLab in Stockholm offers single-particle service with a Talos Arctica for sample optimisation and a Titan Krios for high-resolution data collection. Successful proposals will be scheduled time on the microscopes that will be allocated in either 24h or 48h slots.

The Umeå node is expected to become operational in the beginning of 2017, and will offer cryo-ET with a Titan Krios and a Scios DualBeam SEM. 

APPLICATIONS

The facilities can be accessed by Swedish researchers through a peer-reviewed routine, and applications are welcomed any time though the Application Portal  Applications will be reviewed four times per year. Successful proposals will be scheduled time on the microscopes that will be allocated in either 24h or 48h slots.

EQUIPMENT

For single-particle, we offer access to a Talos Arctica with FEI Falcon II detector and a Titan Krios with FEI Falcon II and Gatan Bioquantum K2 Summit image filter/detector, located at SciLifeLab, Stockholm. For cryo-ET, we offer a Titan Krios with FEI Falcon III and a Scios DualBeam SEM, located at Umeå University.
