Hi cryo-EM experts,
We are in the processes of design a new cryo-EM lab in Singapore in which the external environment normally has the humidity is in range of 80%-95%, with regular aircon the humidity normally in range of 60-70%.
We knew the for frozen-hydrated sectioning room it is better in range of 30-40%, and usually can be reached with powerful dehumidifier in the small room. However, for the large cryo-EM lab with 4 electron microscopes rooms, it would be tough to reach such high-end requirement in Singapore with high external humidity. My quesetions are:
1) What's the average budget for the high-end aircons?
2) what's practical workable humidity range in your cryo-EM lab? I knew some lab in high-end (30%), some just with normal central aircon systems (40-50%). It is also affected by the external environmental humidity.
Your feedback will be valuable for us to consider such challenges.
Thanks in advance!
