Amgen, USC Provide Researchers Access to Thermo Scientific Cryo-EMs

08.10.21

Access to Krios and Glacios microscopes allows researchers from both institutions to combine resources to bring more speed and power to their research.

In a unique partnership, Amgen and the University of Southern California (USC) are working together to provide researchers access to two cutting- edge cryo-transmission electron microscopes (cryo-EMs)—the Thermo Scientific Krios and Glacios
 
Access to the two instruments in one shared location allows researchers from both institutions to combine resources to bring more speed and power to their biotechnology research.
 
Amgen will use the instruments to better understand disease mechanisms as they analyze potential drug targets, focusing on three techniques: single particle analysis, micro electron diffraction, and cryo-tomography.
 
USC will provide instrument expertise to Amgen, while advancing its own research, including using the cryo-EMs to complete the development of an atomic-level map of the entire human cell, one of their most prominent projects.
