Video Guides

Alignment, Imaging, and Use of the Cryo-Optic®
This video explains how to align an objective inside the Cryo-Optic®, how to image your sample, and how to use the Cryo-Optic® software interface and secondary back-up heater.
Assembling the Vertical Cryo-Optic®
This video shows how to assemble the Montana Instruments Cryo-Optic® within the 50 mm sample space.
Cryo-Optic®: High NA Imaging
Overview of the Cryo-Optic® technology on the Cryostation®. The Cryo-Optic® integrates a temperature-controlled, warm objective in vacuum into the cryogenic sample space for virtually drift-free high NA imaging at low temperatures. (Note: While this video features our vertical configuration, the Cryo-Optic® technology is also available in horizontal configurations for our larger platform sizes.)
