Welcome to the Cryo Electron Microscopy (CryoEM) Core at UNC Chapel Hill
We provide services and training in all aspects of cryoEM sample preparation, screening and high-resolution data collection. Check out our Services and don’t hesitate to Contact Us if you have any questions!
Check out some of our high-resolution structures!
In addition to high-resolution single-particle cryoEM, we also provide cryoTEM analysis of nanoparticles and cryo-electron tomography as a fee-for-service.
