The SINGLA 1M is an EIGER2-based electron detector. With its roughly 1,000 x 1,000 pixels, it is suitable for Cryo-Electron Microscopy (CryoEM) and Micro-Electron Diffraction (MicroED) applications. Single-particle analysis and cryo-electron tomography also benefit greatly from the detector’s speed. In addition, the SINGLA’s fast readout speed (exceeding 2,000 frames per second), combined with its superior dynamic range, make it the ideal detector for small-molecule and 3D micro-crystallography. The detector is bottom-mounted, with optional vacuum flanges for JEOL and Thermo Fisher Scientific transmission electron microscopes. It can be operated with SerialEM.
