The Mark IV FEI/Thermo Fisher Vitrobot is located in Clark Hall, room D21E. Training is done by Katie Spoth or Mariena Silvestry. Upon successful completion of the training, users can access the Vitrobot at all times with their ID.
A set of Vitrobot tweezers is provided, but users are always welcomed to bring their own. Two glow discharge/plasma cleaner units are available for use, along with a storage dewar for temporary sample storage. Users must bring their own grids and grid boxes prior to using the instrument, especially for their first training session. Contact Mariena or Katie for information on what supplies are needed for sample vitrification. Reservations should be made using FOM.
