Tundra Cryo-TEM customer stories

“The Tundra is really going to help with accessibility because from what we’ve seen here, a user that has never before loaded a sample onto the microscope was able to do it seamlessly.”


Andrew Borst, Head of Electron Microscopy Institute for Protein Design, Seattle, WA

“Electron microscopy, and especially cryo-EM, has been essential. It has powered my research and offered a new perspective to help my collaborators”


Dr. Montserrat Samso, Virginia Commonwealth University

“One of the reasons why we are really excited about [the Tundra Cryo-TEM] is that it is helping democratize cryo-EM… It has a lot of functionality, and we foresee a lot of low-resource institutions coming in and making use of that form factor. It has been one of the most highly utilized training tools that we have at our center.”


Edward Eng, New York Structural Biology Center

“The major benefit of the Tundra [Cryo-TEM] is the very simple handling, specifically sample insertion, that will make it very simple for the newcomers to start their own cryo-EM experiments. It is not only an entry tool, but can provide highly efficient sample screening that even established cryo-EM labs can use to collect high quality data.”


Dr. Jiri Novacek, Head of cryo-EM Facility CEITEC, Brno 

“The flexibility it provides is super critical.”


Dr. Jared Auclair, Director of Biopharmaceutical Analysis Laboratory, Northwestern University
