Cryo-EM installed at Instruct Centre ES


A new, state-of-the-art cryo-electron microscope (cryo-EM) has been installed at Instruct Centre ES following a joint, eight-million-euro investment of the Spanish National Center for Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC) and EU structural funds. The JEOL JEM-Z300FSC (CRYO ARM™ 300) microscope, housed at the CNB-CSIC in Madrid, is the first of its kind to be installed in Spain. The new microscope, together with new correlative microscopy facilities, will be made available to Spanish users and also to European researchers through Instruct-ERIC, for a variety of scientific projects.

“The new cryo-EM facility at the CNB-CSIC intends to provide service to the large community of Spanish structural biologists which was in need of adequate infrastructure, but also help both the European academia and industry through its connection with Instruct” remarked Prof José María Valpuesta, director of the cryo-EM facility at CNB-CSIC.
