VR Training for cryoEM: Gatan CP3

Technology Readiness Level: 9
  • Technology Readiness Level: 9


Researchers at Purdue University have developed virtual reality training software to teach users to operate the Gatan CP3 system. This technology allows users to become trained on equipment without the high financial constraints associated with using cryoEM equipment. This technology also offers organizations a chance to decrease the machine time that must be set aside for training, as much of a user's training could be completed in a VR environment.




  • Does not require access to equipment (significant cost savings)
  • Reduces machine time that must be dedicated for training

Potential Applications

  • Training for use of Gatan CP3
