Enabling New Research in Life Sciences Workshop - A Bruker AFM Technology Seminar and Demonstration featuring the BioScope Resolve

You are cordially invited to attend a joint workshop hosted by Bruker and the University of Arizona. This seminar and demonstration series will focus on biomechanics, high-resolution imaging and a new level of seamless AFM and inverted optical microscope integration.

Bring your own samples and reserve a slot for private hands-on demonstrations with our applications experts. THE FIRST 20 REGISTRANTS WILL RECEIVE A FREE BOX OF AFM SAMPLE PROBES.

ASU/CASD has ordered a state-of-the-art cryo-EM, the FEI Krios (300 kV) which is suitable for both tomography (high tilt) and single particle (high resolution). The instrument is equipped with 3 detectors, including the Gatan K2, which enables users to engage in structural discovery at the forefront of what is possible using high resolution cryo-EM. This instrument was funded by an NSF grant (John Spence, PI).

The team at ASU is building an email list for the user community for a Southwest Center for Cryo-EM. They are asking that interested UA researchers contact:
