Titan Krios G3i Cryo-TEM

Titan Krios is a state-of-the-art (300kV) cryogenic transmission electron microscope that enables high-resolution structure visualization via single-particle electron microscopy as well as electron tomography.

Krios is dedicated primarily for imaging specimens that have either potential for yielding high-resolution reconstructions (e.g., preliminary reconstruction showing visible secondary structure) and for specimens that can only be imaged on the Krios (e.g. thickness requiring 300 kV and energy filtering).
