    Cheaper microscope could bring protein mapping technique to the masses

    “The freezing process is finicky, and the microscopes are expensive. High-end machines can cost more than $5 million to buy, about as much to install, and hundreds of thousands per year to operate and maintain. Many U.S. states—and countries—don’t have a single cryo-EM microscope.”

    “Russo wants a manufacturer to commercialize his team’s design, which he believes could be built and sold for $500,000. That’s within reach of a new hire’s startup package, or one of the regular equipment grants offered by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or National Science Foundation”
