The Biological Cryo-Imaging Group was established a little over a year ago and brings together dedicated facilities for X-ray, light and electron microscopy at Diamond. The bending magnet B24 is the source of X-rays for the full field cryo-transmission X-ray microscope dedicated to biological X-ray imaging. The beamline has also established a cryo-super resolution fluorescence microscopy facility, which is a joint venture between Diamond and the University of Oxford. Exploiting electrons for imaging, the electron BioImaging Centre (eBIC) is the national centre for cryo-Electron Microscopy (cryo-EM) in the UK and provides a range of capabilities and supporting facilities for cryo-EM. The first year of the Biological Cryo-Imaging Group at Diamond has been a busy one, with both B24 and eBIC developing and expanding their capabilities. This has meant installation, commissioning of new instrumentation, and a major focus on recruitment. Read more ...
