U28-E12. FEI Vitrobot Mark IV

Specifications:
Working temperature 4 – 60 °C (at an ambient temperature range between 18 – 25 °C).
Peltier controlled heating/cooling.
Maintain relative humidity at 100 %.
Ultrasonic controlled humidification.
Linux operating system.
Touch screen control and set-up. Mouse and foot pedal controls also available.
Small sample volumes can be applied manually with a pipette through a small side port on the left and the right side of the climate chamber.
Both application time and wait time (between application and blotting) are software controlled and can be set in the user interface.
Precisely timed control of multiple sample applications, blotting actions, and vitrification enables time resolved analysis of interactions among separately applied components.
Excess fluid is removed from the grid by (repeated) blotting with filter paper on rotating foam pads.
Number of blotting actions (max. 16 times for one grid) and duration of blotting are software controlled and can be set in the user interface.
Longitudinal grid positioning (‘blot offset’) and wait time between blotting and vitrification (‘drain time’) are user definable.
Automated shutter control allows smooth, instant injection of the sample grid into the coolant (liquid ethane or propane). A lift for the container brings the coolant close to the shutter to ensure optimal vitrification.
Synchronous lowering of the coolant container and the grid holder keeps the grid submerged in the coolant and minimizes the risk of contamination prior to transfer ring the sample into a storage box or cryo holder.
Coolant container including an integrated anti-contamination ring.

U28-E09. Leica FC7 cryo-chamber on Leica EM UC7 ultramicrotome

Specifications:
• Using the touchscreen control, three different cryo-modes are available:
– Standard.
– High gas flow, increased gaseous nitrogen flow reduces ice contamination below -140 °C.
– Wet sectioning, to set a temperature difference of up to 130 °C between knife (-40 °C) and specimen (-170 °C), which is useful for, e.g., DMSO applications.

• Leica EM CRION ionizer with electrostatic charge and discharge functions controlled by foot switches greatly improves the method of cryosection collection.
• The attachable micromanipulator provides precise positioning of the grid to make section collection easier than ever before.
• Multiple lighting angles using the patented LED chamber illumination provide excellent visibility for section manipulation and pick up.
• Contact-free, through-the-wall specimen arm makes the instrument highly stable for chatter-free cryosectioning.
• Heated chamber walls prevent icing over a prolonged working time and enhance user comfort.
• Especially for frozen hydrated sectioning or the Tokuyasu method, the Leica EM CRION with electrostatic discharge and charge mode used with the micromanipulator provides outstanding cryo sectioning performance.
