Advances in Studying Cellular Biology – Automated Sample Preparation for Cryo-Electron Tomography

Cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) is an emerging technique to study the cellular architecture and the structure of proteins at high resolution in situ. Unfortunately, most biological specimens are too thick to be directly investigated by cryo-ET and require tedious prep work prior to investigation. What’s more frustrating is that sample preparation via focused ion beam milling is prone to contamination. But it’s time to make artifacts the exception and not the rule. Join us to discover a milling solution optimized for cellular biology that not only reduces the risk for contamination but is also automated for simpler application.
