Free Webinar: Optimized cryo workflows using the VCT500

17 Dec 15:00 – 16:00 UTCオンラインセミナー

Preparing and observing biological samples under cryogenic conditions enables the analysis of their structural building block in their native state. Therefore, it is key to keep the sample under cryo conditions along the workflow at all times. The Leica EM VCT500 is an optimized, contamination-protected cryo transfer tool that offers maximum versatility in combining different cryo workflows and analysing systems. In this Webinar, Dr. Saskia Mimietz-Oeckler and Dr. Julia König will give an introduction to the vacuum transfer technique and discuss different application examples how the VCT500 can be in incorporated into different workflows enabling applications in cryo SEM observations all the way to cryo -FIB Lift-out preparations.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • How to use vaccum cryo transfer system 
  • Advantages of the EM VCT500 and EM VCM in different cryo workflows
  • Flexible integration on different analysis systems 


  • Dr. Julia König, Diploma and PhD thesis in the lab of Thomas Mueller-Reichert at the MPI-CBG, Dresden University of Technology.
  • Dr. Saskia Mimietz-Oeckler, Biology at Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg
