How it Works: Cryo-Electron Microscopy
An introduction to one of science's most advanced techniques
What is it?
Cryo-electron microscopy at Diamond
Cryo-EM is an amazing technique with the power to add an entirely new level of insight to biological science, but the infrastructure to support the latest generation of electron microscopes can be prohibitively expensive. Cryo-EM requires specialist equipment, advanced software, and scientific staff who have specialised as electron microscopists, so it makes sense for facilities to be centralised at places like Diamond experienced in running very valuable equipment 24 hours a day.
