Description
Electron microscopy is a major tool in structural biology. The EM unit within the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology at the University of Leeds operates a modern FEI T-F20 microscope for high-resolution work. For preliminary cryo-EM studies we rely on a JEOL 1200EX electron microscope that is now >20 years old, and becoming increasingly difficult and expensive to maintain. Furthermore, because of its unsophisticated vacuum system it is only marginally capable of working in cryo-mode , meaning cryo-specimen optimisation and training must actually be carried out on our T-F20. We wish to purchase an FEI G2-Spirit microscope to replace the obsolete inst...
