Cryo EM Grid Box 


Electron Cryomicroscopy (Cryo-EM) has recently undergone a 'resolution revolution', challenging macromolecular crystallography as the most powerful method for the determination of the atomic structures of large and important biological macromolecules.

Grid boxes form an essential part of the Cryo-EM workflow as they enable the transfer and storage of vitrified samples on standard EM grids in liquid nitrogen storage dewars.

The SWISSCI Cryo EM Grid Box has been specially developed to improve on many features of current solutions. Backed by years of experience in Cryo-EM, the SWISSCI Cryo EM Grid Box has been developed in close collaboration with Jan Löwe at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge.

The SWISSCI Cryo EM Grid Box is made from a special polymer formulation which ensures no static charging occurs at cryogenic temperatures. The box has four diamond-shaped slot positions that each have their own number indicated on the side. No special tools are required since the lid is rotated with standard laboratory tweezers. Uniquely numbered Pressure Adhesive Cryo Labels are supplied with the boxes giving the consumer the option over marking up each box themselves. The labels enable error-free recognition of each sample and are applied to the lid allowing for easy viewing during both storage and use. The Cryo EM Grid Box is of standard size for all common Cryo-EM sample mounting and storage devices. Because mass-produced, low cost pricing enables single use, thus giving each stored sample a truly unique identification number without any chance of mixing up samples.
