Electron cryomicroscopy (CryoEM) is an electron microscopy (EM) technique where the sample is cooled to cryogenic temperatures.

There are various types of electron microscopy, some of which has been performed at cryogenic temperatures:

Transmission electron cryomicroscopy[edit]

Transmission electron cryomicroscopy (CryoTEM) is a transmission electron microscopy technique is used in structural biology.

Scanning electron cryomicroscopy[edit]

Scanning electron cryomicroscopy (CryoSEM), is scanning electron microscopy technique with a scanning electron microscope's cold stage in a cryogenic chamber.
