The techniques available at eBIC include:
• Single particle analysis of biological macromolecules
• Cellular tomography
• Electron crystallography
The centre currently offers access to two state of the art instruments for cryo-electron microscopy: KRIOS I and Polara.
Based at the University of Oxford’s Particle Imaging Centre (OPIC), Polara is the associated partner of eBIC at Diamond. Scientists can use Polara to study the structure of viruses and the way in which they interact with host cells, exploiting the techniques of electron cryo-microscopy and electron cryo-tomography.Read more...
