Cryo-Electron Microscopy Platform

The NISB Cryo-Electron Microscopy Platform at NTU for imaging biological samples was set up to support the research community in NTU and Singapore. The applications include Single Particle Analysis (SPA) of purified proteins and viruses, Cryo-Electron Tomography (Cryo-ET) of cell sections, bacterial and tissue samples, Micro Electron Diffraction (MicroED), Cryo-Focused Ion Beam (Cryo-FIB) of creating a compression-free ultra-thin cryo lamella samples for TEM tomography imaging, and Correlative Light Electron Microscope (CLEM) to image proteins inside the cell, and in isolations, using novel labeling techniques.
