Grids for Cryo-EM
C-Flat Carbon Grids
C-Flat is an ultra-flat carbon support grid, optimized for Cryo-Electron Microscopy (CRYO-EM). Create 3D constructions with ease: just choose the best grid for your research and with C-Flat ultra-flat grids you’re ready to collect data immediately – no pre-washing!
C-FLAT CARBON GRIDS allow you to:
- Acquire better images with thinner ice
The ultra-flat surface of C-flat leads to even ice thickness and uniform particle distribution, allowing for superior 3D reconstructions with ease. C-flat grids have the thinnest ice across the whole grid surface of any grid on the market, as independently measured by Cho et al* All C-flat grids undergo rigorous quality control standards before being shipped, ensuring the maximum number of usable squares for imaging and 3D reconstructions.
- Delivered ready to use without cleaning
C-flat is delivered ready-to-use right out of the box, being manufactured without plastics or polymers. As a result, C-flat requires no solvent washing steps prior to use, leading to less breakage of the holey carbon film and faster sample throughput in Cryo-EM facilities.
- Choose from a wide variety of grid variations
C-flat offers carbon thickness of 20 nm to 40 nm, the only grid company to
offer a choice of carbon thickness to allow you to optimize support for any
biological sample from large cells to individual molecules. C-flat also comes
in hole sizes ranging from 1-4μm, mesh sizes from 200-400 and is available in
copper or gold, allowing for a wide variety of options compatible with any
sample preparation procedure.
