from bottleneck to automated process

In the past few years electron microscopes have become increasingly faster, increasing their overall throughput. However, this throughput improvement can only be used effectively if sample preparation is able to keep up with the image acquisition. The main bottleneck here lies in the fact that sample preparation requires several time-consuming …

Preparing cryo-lamellae with the guidance of METEOR

Cryo-FIB milling is used to thin biological samples so the samples can be imaged with cryo-ET. This stage of the sample preparation benefits from an integrated FLM to image the sample during milling. One of the main advantages is that the region of interest (ROI) can be located easily based …
