Electron Microscopy

Single Particle Analysis

Structural biology at near-atomic resolution with single particle cryo electron microscopy.

Investigating biomolecules at near-atomic resolutions allows you to explore the very architecture of life. Cryo electron microscopy single particle analysis (Cryo-EM SPA) is rapidly becoming a mainstream structural biology technique, facilitating the study of:

  • Dynamic biological processes
  • Protein structure
  • Protein complexes and aggregates
  • Large virus assemblies

Cryo-electron microscopy is a multi-step process. See how it can speed up your research and development with our single particle analysis workflow:

Structural Biology Research

Cryo-electron microscopy enables the structural analysis of challenging biological targets such as large complexes, flexible species and membrane protein.


Infectious Disease Research

Cryo-EM techniques enable multiscale observations of 3D biological structures in their near-native states, informing faster, more efficient development of therapeutics.


Drug Discovery

Learn how to take advantage of rational drug design for many more major drug target classes, leading to best-in-class drugs.


Proteins Analysis

Cryo-electron microscopy provides near-atomic resolution 3D protein structure. It can determine structural information for complexes and crystallization-resistant samples, as well as vital cellular context.
