Cryo-EM Sample Preparation Workshop

Date: 09-Jan-2017 to 11-Jan-2017


Diamond Light Source, Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Didcot, UK iNEXT event

The goal of the workshop is to teach users the best practices in sample preparation for cryoEM imaging. The workshop will be composed of lectures, covering the theory behind sample preparation for cryo-EM, as well as hands-on training sessions in the vitrification of selected biological samples. Participants will prepare vitrified samples on the latest generation of plunge-freezing devices and subsequently screen these samples with the eBIC Titan Krios and Talos Arctica electron microscopes.

This workshop will be geared toward novices and aims to equip them with the necessary skill set to further develop their cryo-EM expertise at their home laboratories. Several biological test samples will be proved allowing participants hands on experience with a variety of samples.
