Automated Cryotomographic Stage for X-ray Microscopy

Carolyn Larabell and Mark Le Gros of Berkeley Lab have developed an automated cryogenic stage for the acquisition of high resolution (
Benefits: 
Resolutions approach those of electron microscopes, without requiring vacuum conditions - Rapidly surveys cells ( < 3 minutes for obtaining a data set on one cell) - Enables correlated x-ray and visible light imaging of the same sample - Maintains the sample at a precise temperature without mechanical disturbance
