The Beckman Center for Cryo-EM

Overview of Services

The Beckman Center for Cryo-EM at Johns Hopkins was established to provide cutting edge cryo-EM to the Johns Hopkins and regional communities. The heart of the center is the G3i Titan Krios® equipped with a phase plate and K3® Gatan direct detector. The center also maintains various support equipment such as a FEI Vitrobot® Mark IV and Pelco easiGlow®. Modern facilities, such as this one, are capable of producing thousands of high resolution cryo-EM images or scores of tomogram tilt series per day. These images allow the determination of high resolution cellular component structures, up to ~2Å.
