The Multi Institute Cryo-EM Facility (MICEF) is a collaborative facility maintained by the NIDDK. It serves the scientific communities of NHLBI, NIDDK, NIAMS, and NINDS. It currently houses a Titan Krios microscope equipped with GIF Quantum K2 system. The facility allows for fully-automated atomic-resolution single-particle data collection using SerialEM and Leginon.

MICEF offers support in planning EM experiments, sample preparation and imaging, using equipment, and analyzing data. The scope is located in building 13, room G826. EM grid plungers, carbon evaporator and glow discharge machines are located in building 8, room 1A18.

Contact Huaibin Wang to discuss potential projects and to schedule time on the instruments.
