CryoEM zero-vibration cold tip

In life-sciences research, cooling biological samples of, for example, proteins, viruses and bacteria to extremely low temperatures facilitates new forms of microscopy.


This requires the integration of a sample holder provided with a cold stage into the workflow of preparing and analysing samples. Demcon kryoz designed an efficient cryogenic micro-cooler that has a low form factor and demonstrated its high mechanical and thermal stability, as described in this Mikroniek article.
