The BioCryo EM lab of EPIC recently installed a powerful new instrument


Dr. Reiner Bleher and Eric W. Roth prepare the new Leica EM HPM100 to conduct an experiment.

The BioCryo EM lab of the Electron Probe Instrumentation Center (EPIC) recently installed a powerful new instrument, the Leica EM HPM100 high pressure freezer. Training of users on the new instrument will begin a few weeks from now. 

The Leica EM HPM100 is a high pressure freezing system for vitrifying samples up to 200µm in thickness. Samples can be frozen for freeze fracturing and cryo SEM, as well as for cryosectioning and cryo S/TEM. The state-of-the-art design of the Leica EM HPM100 enables express sample handling and easy use with excellent freezing results.
