Max Planck Institute Martinsred installs Quorum PP3000T

The world famous German institute of biochemistry called Quorum Technologies' PP3000T system "well designed" and "easy to use".

Scientists in the department of molecular structural biology at the renowned Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsred, Germany, used the PP3000T system as part of a study on cryo-electron tomography.

The PP3000T played a key role in the development of a new breakthrough technique that enables visualization of the interior of thick eukaryotic cells in their native hydrated state.

Dr Alex Rigort of Max Planck Institute said: "The PP3000T system is a well designed, easy to use system that enables an efficient transfer of cryogenic specimens for FIB processing. It is great in terms of stability and cooling efficiency. 

"The software interface and touchscreen that comes along with it is straightforward to use and gives you an excellent overview of the different system parameters in use".
