Tokyo (April 26, 2017)
Cryo-electron microscopy has been established as a method to enable observation of cells and biological molecules with no fixation and no staining. Owing to the recent rapid progress of hardware and software, this microscopy technique has become increasingly important as an atomic-scale structural analysis method. In addition, technologies that enable analysis of membrane proteins without crystallization have been developed, resulting in increased use of cryo-electron microscopy for drug discovery. Thus, installation of cryo-electron microscopes (cryo-EM) in universities and research laboratories is greatly accelerating. To meet the needs of cryo-EM users, JEOL has developed a new cryo-EM "CRYO ARM(tm) 200", which automatically acquires image data for Single Particle Analysis over a long period of time.
