BMB has established a partnership with the Washington University Center for Cellular Imaging (WUCCI) through the joint acquisition of a new Glacios 200 kV cryo-EM microscope financed by a strategic investment of the Doisy Fund in Biochemistry. The partnership gives all SLU researchers access to the WUCCI with the same priority, costs, and technical assistance available to WU investigators.

The new Glacios complements the WUCCI’s pre-existing Titan Krios 300 kV cryo-EM and has significantly expanded the workflow of many labs at both WU and SLU, thereby benefiting the entire scientific community of the greater St. Louis region.
