Cryo-EM Sample Preparation Workshop at Dimond Light Source

Registration Date: 15-Aug-2018
Date: 02-Oct-2018 to 04-Oct-2018


The goal of the workshop is to teach users the best practices in sample preparation for cryo-EM imaging. The workshop will be principally hands-on with students preparing vitrified samples on the latest generation of plunge-freezing devices.  They will then have the opportunity to subsequently screen these samples with the eBIC Titan Krios and Talos Arctica electron microscopes.

Date: 2-4 October 2018 

Venue: Diamond Light Source, UK

This workshop will be geared toward novices with the only requirement being that applicants show they plan to use cryo-EM as part of their current research and have access to a plunge-freezing device. The workshop aims to equip participants with the necessary skill set to further develop their cryo-EM expertise at their home laboratories. Several biological test samples will be provided allowing participants hands on experience with a variety of samples.
