Watch our on-demand demonstration to see how Smart EPU can help you be more productive in your current single particle analysis data collection and makes it easier for new users to get started in cryo-EM. Eager to discover more?
Get ready for the demo by watching the introduction of Smart EPU in our complementary on-demand webinar.
Join us for an on-demand demo of Thermo Scientific Smart EPU on the Thermo Scientific Tundra Cryo-TEM. Whether you are new to cryo-EM or are an experienced user, you will see how the powerful Smart EPU assists with experimental setup and provides real-time feedback throughout the experiment, reducing the need for prior expertise. Learn how automation and AI-driven plugins can guide the user through critical decision points and, in some cases, make decisions automatically, reducing the need for manual intervention.
During this session, we will highlight:
- User guidance to automate setup process
- AI-assisted target/hole selection
- Automatic corrective microscope behavior
- Real-time data collection adjustments
- Automatic tool status updates
- Open API for community development
