Thermo Fisher - FEI Talos Arctica
The FEI Talos Arctica is a 200keV high- performance automated transmission electron microscope designed specifically for cryo-electron microscopy. This system is capable of reaching 2.5 Angstrom resolution. The Falcon 3 direct detection device's counting mode and drift correction produce high signal-to-noise and high-resolution images for tomography and single-particle data. The system is equipped with a Volta phase plate that makes imaging of very small (less than 200kDa) proteins possible. The Arctica is primarily used for medium resolution structures that can then be passed to the Krios for very high-resolution imaging and reconstruction.
The Arctica is available on a recharge basis to all UOW staff as well as external users and industry users.
