The final week of February, 2019 (Feb. 25 - Mar 1), iLab Operations Software will be conducting an internal event with all product staff. iLab Support will be staffed at significantly reduced levels and will focus on critical issues only (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing). For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone (regional numbers can be found here) and we will prioritize those requests first. Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically and processed in order of submission starting March 4th, 2019. During this time, you can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information. Please note that this will not affect standard Core Facility Operations.

Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility (Huck)

Overview of Services

This Facility is built around the capabilities of our FEI Titan Krios microscope. Installed in the spring and summer of 2017, this revolutionary, cryo-based technology permits a full range of semi-automated applications, includng 2D electron crystallography, single particle analysis, cryo-electron microscopy, and dual axis cellular tomography of frozen hydrated cell organelles and cells.
