The Cryo-EM Swedish National Facility offers access to state-of-the-art equipment and expertise in single particle cryo-EM and cryo-tomography (cryo-ET). The Facility has two nodes: at SciLifeLab in Stockholm and at Umeå University. Our aim is to provide:
An internationally competitive infrastructure that is accessible to all academic scientists in Sweden on equal terms.
A training environment where researchers can become familiar with cutting-edge methods in cryo-EM.
An educational framework of scientific meetings, practical workshops and training courses to enhance the activity of the broad Swedish scientific community.
SciLifeLab in Stockholm offers single-particle service with a Talos Arctica for sample optimisation and a Titan Krios for high-resolution data collection. Successful proposals will be scheduled time on the microscopes that will be allocated in either 24h or 48h slots.
The Umeå node is expected to become operational in the fall of 2017, and will offer cryo-ET with a Titan Krios and a Scios DualBeam SEM.
Applications can be submitted at any time and will be evaluated once every three months based on their scientific merit and technical feasibility by a national Project Evaluation Committee. In order to submit an application, you need to register an account and log in.
