Cryo-electron microscope for industry - installation in progress

Cryo-electron microscope for industry - installation in progress

The second cryo-electron microscope is being installed at the SOLARIS Centre.

In October we have signed a contract with Labsoft for the delivery of a new cryo-electron microscope. Thermo Scientific™ Glacios™ will be the part of the National CryoEM Centre, which already is the operator of our flagship microscope: Krios™ G3i.

The purchase of the second microscope will complement the SOLARIS offer, as it is dedicated primarily for the industrial users and for screening the samples before studying them at the Krios™ G3i.

CryoEM is currently becoming one of the most important techniques used in structural biology. It allows for determining the structure of proteins and other biomolecules without the need of crystallization and understanding of the cellular mechanisms behind human diseases. It also facilitates the design of new drugs, as well as the optimization of existing ones. The technique is also successfully being applied in nanotechnology and other fields.

After the installation, Glacios™ has to pass the Site Acceptance Test.

Co-financing will be realized under the EU's Smart Growth Operational Programme (Measure 4.2 "Development of modern research infrastructure of the science sector").
