Introduction

The EM-Tec cryo grid boxes are used with cryo-vitrification systems and are all compatible with the TFS / FEI Vitrobot, Gatan CP3 / 3500 / 626 and the Leica EM GP cryo plunge systems. The base of the boxes includes 4 cavities for 4 cryo grids, a diameter of 14mm with a indent to accommodate the notch in the cryo plunge systems. The cryo grid box for the AutoGrids has larger cavities to accommodate the larger diameter AutoGrids.The available EM-Tec cryo grid boxes are:

  • EM-Tec GCB4 cryo grid box with clear rotating lid and reduced static blue ABS body with 4 diamond shaped cavities
  • EM-Tec CGB-7 cryo grid box with pin type lid and reduced static blue ABS body with 4 cavities
  • EM-Tec CGB-4A cryo grid box with rotating lid, body and screw all made from alumium, ESD safe and excellent cryo properties
  • EM-Tec CGB-7A cryo grid box with pin type lid and body both made from aluminium; ESD safe and excellent cryo properties
  • EM-Tec CGB-6 premium cryo grids box made from anti-static polymer blend with 4 marked cavities, click-stop rotating lid and labeled with a unique ID number
  • EM-Tec ACB-4A cryo grid box with larger cavities for AutoGrids and pin type lid. Body and lid both made from aluminium; ESD safe and excellent cryo properties

EM-Tec CGB-6 premium Cryo grid box for 4 TEM grids with click-stop lid and unique numbering
EM-Tec CGB-6 premium Cryo grid box for 4 TEM grids with click-stop lid and unique numbering The EM-Tec CGB-6 premium cryo grid box has been developed in close collaboration with Jan Löwe at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK. Its primary use is for storing cryo vitrification samples on TEM grids. This practical cryo grid box incorporates a number of improvements like a click-stop rotating lid, a vertical ridge on the lid for easy rotation, marked cavities and a unique number for each individual cryo grid box. The base is a round grid box with 4 diamond shaped positions, marking of each position and an index notch. The lid can be rotated with standard laboratory tweezers and the click-stop mechanism keeps the lid on the base and in place when a cavity is selected. The unique numbering makes it easy to archive the samples, to retrieve from storage and to avoid archiving mistakes or mix-up of samples. The EM-Tec CGB-6 cryo grid box is compatible with the FEI Vitrobot, Gatan CP3, Gatan 3500, Gatan 626 and Leica EM GP cryo systems. Dimensions of the EM-Tec CGB-6 are Ø14 x 9mm. Made from an anti-static polymer blend.

EM-Tec 553.AM cryo grid box handling tweezers, 145mm, anti-magnetic stainless steel

The EM-Tec 553.AM precision cryo grid box handling tweezers are especially designed for handling the small cryo grid boxes used for storing TEM grid under liquid nitrogen. They can be used with the EM-Tec GB4 cryo grid box and other cryo grid boxes of similar design with a rotating lid and a central screw to hold the lid. With these tweezers you can pick up de cryo grid box by holding the head of the screw on the top.  Designed for Ø5mm screw heads, but can be used for screw head sizes Ø3mm to Ø6mm. Length of these tweezers is 145mm.
The high quality, Swiss made EM-Tec 553.AM precision cryo grid box handling tweezers feature:

  • polished edges for good contact,
  • added length for safe handling in LN2
  • matte anti-glare finish
  • serrated handles for extra grip
  • Cryo compatible, low carbon austenitic stainless steel
  • optimized for Ø5mm screw heads (can be used from Ø3-6mm)
