The solution comes equipped with a Krios G4 Cryo transmission electron microscope, a Falcon 4 camera, and an EPU quality monitor with data management powered by Athena.

The Krios solution from Thermo Fisher Scientific is a solution capable of eliminating the barriers behind cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) adoption through ease-of-use, faster results, and a compact 300-kV cryo-EM microscope design.

The solution is equipped with a Krios G4 Cryo transmission electron microscope that can fit into a standard-sized lab, a Falcon 4 camera that captures images up to 10 times faster than the previous model, and an EPU quality monitor with data management powered by Athena for researchers working remotely to monitor the quality of the data as it is being collected.

"With the rapid adoption of cryo-EM, it's critical that researchers have fast, accessible solutions that produce the highest-quality results, especially as advanced techniques such as single particle analysis and cryo-tomography grow in importance," said Mike Shafer, president of materials and structural analysis at Thermo Fisher Scientific, in an Aug. 5, 2019 press release. "Our new Krios solution addresses these needs, accelerating scientific discoveries that are helping to solve some of humankind's most pressing problems."
