Posted on January 6, 2016 in News

Nature Methods has announced that the 2015 Method of the Year is single particle cryo-electron microscopy. According to Nature Methods: “The recent technical advances, especially the development of direct-detection cameras, have enabled this structural biology technique to make impressive leaps in achievable resolution and, in turn, provide new insights about protein function.”

Congratulations to the entire field of scientists who have worked hard over the past several decades to advance the field to this point. The recognition that the field is now receiving is well deserved. Direct Electron is honored to work with such outstanding researchers in the field, and together with our customers and partners we are continuing to push detection technology forward ourselves to help enable further breakthroughs in the field.
