Cryocooling Upgrade at UCSF - Upcoming Events for SMX and Cryo-EM - Call for Proposals - Jobs Openings - Scholarships

NANUQ™ Installation
Macromolecular Structure Group at UCSF Takes Delivery of a MiTeGen NANUQ™ Advanced Cryocooling Device
January 22nd, 2020 -

The Macromolecular Structure Group (MSG) at UCSF took delivery of a MiTeGen NANUQ™ advanced cryocooling device.

With the NANUQ™ installed at their central facility, users at UCSF now have access to a system that allows for advanced crystal cryocooling.

Utilizing automated cryo-plunging, combined with cold-gas layer removal, NANUQ™ :

• improves cooling rates
• eliminates variability,
• preserves crystal quality
• and provides users with complete control of their sample prep.

Want to try your crystals on NANUQ ?
Your lab can now see the impact cryocooling has on your diffraction quality. Don't let your lab miss out on getting better diffraction.
Upcoming Events
At MiTeGen, we sponsor numerous educational events, conferences, and symposiums throughout the year. We believe in supporting researchers and our industry. Listed below are two upcoming events you should try to attend!

The LACA school is designed for students and professionals that wish to learn or improve their knowledge of the theory behind single crystal X-Ray diffraction. The program includes a wide range of topics spanning from symmetry via the theory of the diffraction phenomena to data processing and crystal structure solution and refinement. Registration is now closed, but support is still welcomed. We are sponsoring this event.

March 23rd to 29th
UNAM Main Campus, Mexico City

The 2020 Three-Dimensional Electron Microscopy (3DEm) GRC will feature scientific talks presenting state-of-the-art aspects of Cryo-EM research. Includes a keynote session on the future impact of 3DEm on structural biology. As well as numerous discussions ranging from Sample Preparation and Workflows to CryoEM in Drug Discovery. " We are sponsoring this event.

June 21st to 26th
Castelldefels, Spain
