C-flat™, Au-flat™ and CD-flat™ grids (formerly manufactured by Protochips™ now by Electron Microscopy Sciences, EMS) are ultra-flat, holey carbon- or gold alloy film coated support grids for (cryo-)TEM. Unlike competing holey carbon films, they are manufactured without plastics, therefore clean upon arrival and without any residue to contend with. Artifacts such as excess carbon and edges around holes are eliminated.
- Consistent: ultra-flat for even ice thickness and uniform particle distribution (ideal for Single Particle Analysis and cryo-electron tomography)
- Compatible: regular array, also suitable for automated data collection
- Clean: ready-to-use, no solvent washing prior to use
