Tutorial abstract

Preparing and observing biological samples under cryogenic conditions enables analysis of their structural building blocks in their native state. The sample must be kept under cryo conditions throughout the entire workflow. The Leica EM VCT500 is an optimized, contamination-protected cryo transfer tool, flexible enough to be integrated into different cryo workflows and analysis systems. In this webinar, Dr. Saskia Mimietz-Oeckler and Dr. Julia König will introduce the vacuum transfer technique and discuss different application examples, from cryo SEM observations all the way through to cryo - FIB Lift-out preparations.
