Contributions To SARS-CoV-2 Research
Like many in our research community, we are proud of the contribution our efforts and products have played in contributing to SARS-CoV-2 related research.
(NANUQ™ Cryocooler at UCSF Molecular Structure Group)
A recent highlight for us was knowing our tools helped enabled aspects of the massive effort detailed in the following article and that our NANUQ™ cryocooling device played a direct role at UCSF's contribution to:

The work detailed is incredible and we take pride knowing our tools were used in the world-wide effort and that the NANUQ™ system was used at UCSF for

Replacing hand-plunged crystals with ultra-fast cooling that results in:

  • Less growth of ice crystals
  • Lower cryoprotectant need
  • Less crystal non-isomorphism
  • Reduced cooling-induced conformation changes
Funding Opportunity - Basic Instrumentation Grant (BIG)
Open grant opportunity for NIH-funded researchers:

The Basic Instrumentation Grant (BIG) Program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase a single high-priced, specialized, commercially available instrument or an integrated instrumentation system.

The award ranges from $25,000 to $250,000.
Application deadline is June 1st, 2021.
Our NANUQ™ Advanced Cryocooling Device could be an ideal candidate for the BIG Grant program.
Expanded Offerings: Cryo-EM Lab Starter Kits
Getting started in Cryo-EM or finding the leading tools should be easy for any lab - so we have expanded our offerings. Let us help your lab get started using cryo-EM or help keep your current lab updated.
