We will present JEOL’s latest electron cryo-microscope, the CRYO ARM™ 300 II. This microcope features critical improvements such as a new cold field emission gun and a new in-column Omega energy filter aimed at improving the attainable resolution and throughput. Using Kohler-type illumination the improvements result in a 1.29Å resolution map of apo-ferritin and a never before achieved acquisition rate of 20,000 images/day, thus realizing the elucidation in both general Life Sciences and the pharmacological sector of 4-5 projects per day, start to finish.
