Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is a revolutionizing technique used to determine the structures of biological molecules. The sample is frozen in a thin layer of vitreous ice and imaged in an electron microscope. The method allows imaging a vast range of biological molecules like small proteins in nano-meter range to large macromolecular complexes like liposomes, fibrils and even whole viruses and bacterial cells.

Equipped with state-of-the art cryo-EM sample preparation tools and imaging equipment we offer a wide range of services to our academic and industrial users. Contact us to learn more about bookings.

The facility is being maintained by Thomas Heidler and Pia Sundermeyer.
