Titan Krios delivery

The Cryo-Electron Microscopy (Cryo-EM) Consortium is pleased to announce that the new Titan Krios 300kV cryo-electron microscope has arrived in the Department.


Installation has now begun and will take approximately 10-12 weeks.

The arrival of this new equipment complements the 200kV instrument that was installed at the end of 2016. The combination of these two machines will establish a comprehensive core Cryo-EM Facility, for use primarily (but not exclusively) by investigators across the Schools of the Biological Sciences and Clinical Medicine.

For more information on the Cryo-EM Facility, visit their website. You can also read up on the background of the Cryo-EM Consortium in our previous news article.
