The Beckman Center for Cryo-Electron Microscopy is for samples that have already been optimized and are ready for extended cryo-EM data collection sessions on the Titan Krios for 3D reconstructions. If your samples are still in the optimization stage, we refer you to our Cryo-EM Screening Facility located in the basement of the Anatomy Chemistry Building, Room B33.

As a reminder, the Beckman Center for Cryo-Electron Microscopy is designated as a BSL-1 facility. If your project requires BSL-2, please contact the CEMAC committee for further discussion.
