The Titan Krios G4 with Cold-FEG, SelectrisX energy filter, and Falcon IV detector: Solve structures at record-breaking resolutions
The 300kV Titan Krios G4 Cryo-TEM with the Thermo Scientific E-CFEG and the groundbreaking Thermo Scientific Selectris X Imaging Filters to advance cryo-EM discovery with unprecedented resolution, speed, and ease of use.
The E-CFEG is a cold field emission gun with a narrow energy spread that results in higher contrast images and enables atomic resolution. This add-on makes it possible to efficiently solve structures at resolutions of 2.0 Å or less.
Selectris X Imaging Filters provide unique stability, accessibility, and performance. Paired with the Thermo Scientific Falcon 4 Direct Electron Detector, these two add-ons produce better quality images up to 10 times faster than the previous generation.
The group of Sjors Scheres together with scientists from FEI/TFS recently published an article in Nature, describing the use of a prototype instrument in this configuration to study protein structures at never-before-achieved resolutions, obtaining a 1.2 Å resolution structure of the iron-storing protein apoferritin and a 1.7 Å resolution of the GABA type A receptor-associated protein, with an even sharper resolution in key parts of the protein.
