CryoSPARC Live Walkthrough

Join us while we process cryo-EM data (EMPIAR-10288) using cryoSPARC Live. We'll walk you through the interface and process this dataset from start to finish.

CryoSPARC Live is available with the cryoSPARC software platform:

Webinar - Real-time cryo-EM analysis for all: cryoSPARC Live

Learn how cryoSPARC Live, a seamless real-time 2D and 3D processing system for single particle cryo-EM, accelerates time-to-structure and drives rapid insights into sample characteristics and data quality, enabling decision making while the sample is still in the microscope.

CryoSPARC Live is not just for facilities; it is also the fastest, simplest way for beginners and experts alike to process cryo-EM data that has already been collected. We will cover use cases, performance considerations, real-time experimentation and practical workflows, and will be joined by two expert guest speakers, Giovanna Scapin (NIS) and Craig Yoshioka (PNCC), who will discuss how they use cryoSPARC Live in practice in both industry and academic settings.
