chameleon delivers optimized grid vitrification for cryo-EM by combining next-generation automation, blotless grid technology, and high speed plunging. Thinking beyond existing sample preparation workflows enables routine high resolution structural studies.
Enabling the easier selection of only good grids based on visual images during freezing reduces the requirement for costly microscope screening and saves valuable research time.
chameleon’s high speed plunging capability reduces air-water interface protein denaturation effects and allows better handling of difficult samples to improve quality and enable better research outcomes.
The blot-free technology using self wicking grids minimizes variability and enables researchers to gain precise sample specific control of ice thickness.
With almost no manual handling required, chameleon eliminates common grid damage and loss issues to increase workflow efficiency and reduce waste.
Intuitive design makes the instrument easy to use even for novice operators, minimizing training time and streamlining set up.
Easily apply real time adjustments to perfect your sample behaviour and achieve the perfect ice thickness.
Ensure the safe storage and control of cryogens in an automated drawer to maintain their stability and quality and assure research integrity.
Improved data collection and record keeping enables future repeatability as well as data mining to inform new research avenues.
