The NIBN Electron Microscopy Unit provides expertise and resources for solving macro-molecular structures. Structure determination is enabled by high-end transmission electron microscope (TEM) (FEI Tecnai F30 Polara), direct detection camera (Gatan K2 summit with Quantum GIF energy filter), and the computational support necessary for single particle analysis. Higher order structure determination is enabled by tomographic reconstructions using the same setup. Grids sample preparation expertise and equipment (Leica EM GP) are also available.
Our equipment is available for use by NIBN members, BGU faculty as well as other university faculty and industry upon application.
