Purifying samples for cryo-EM preps

Technical improvements related to cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) have triggered a revolution in structural biology and made single-particle cryo-EM the dominant discipline for determining structures. Cryo-EM has opened new opportunities to determine large and complex molecules, but has also introduced new challenges for purification of samples.

Veronica Fridh, Global Product Manager for Biacore systems, Cytiva
Emma Lind, Global Product Manager for resins, Cytiva

Lotta has been with Cytiva, formerly part of GE Healthcare’s Life Sciences business, for 20 years. During that time, she helped to develop ÄKTA chromatography systems and UNICORN software. Lotta was a co-author of the ‘Instrument Management Handbook for ÄKTA Laboratory-scale Chromatography Systems’. She has also supported customers as ÄKTA system specialist within Scientific Support.

Veronica is responsible for the Biacore X100 system and for Biacore training offerings. She has worked six years as an R&D scientist focusing on Biacore application work in new product development projects such as Biacore 8K. Veronica gained user experience of Biacore instruments from her PhD studies including protein-protein interactions, and working with LMW drug discovery at Life Arc (previously MRC Technology), London. She was awarded a PhD degree in Structural and Molecular Biology from University College London in 2010.

Emma is responsible for chromatography resins for use in research and process development (PD). She holds a degree in Bioscience and an MBA from the University of North Carolina and Stockholm University, respectively. She has more than 15 years of experience in the biopharma and biotech industries. Emma has been with the company since 2015, focusing on developing and providing innovative chromatography solutions to researchers and process developers. Originally from North Carolina, she currently resides in Sweden.
