Hybrid Grid Box

NanoSoft's patented (pending) hybrid grid box design is the first cryoEM sample storage box that has dedicated pockets for both unclipped grids and autogrids.  This optimized design securely cradles autogrids and unclipped grids while also allowing for easy placement and removal from pockets. All unclipped grids have individual pockets. There are 2 pockets for autogrids, each housing 2 autogrids; the shift in the axis of the pocket guarantees that tweezers grabbing one autogrid cannot accidentally contact and damage the neighboring autogrid in the same pocket.

Sample pocket numbering is simplified with the patented design, whereby samples are arranged vertically and can be considered samples 1 through 4, top to bottom. Upon clipping, the autogrid can be shifted to the autogrid pocket directly across from the unclipped grid pocket, maintaining the same pocket number (1-4, top to bottom).

Furthermore, organization, traceability and sample tracking are made easier by the 6 different available colors and also by the randomized serial number on the side of the grid box (no customization). Furthermore, the colors were chosen for their opaqueness and strong contrast with the grid, making it easy to visualize the pocket and the placement and removal of unclipped grids and autogrids.  

Although other pin lids can work with the Hybrid Grid Box, our Pin Lid design allows for optimized access to all sample pockets in the Thermo Fisher Scientific grid clipping station and cassette loading station. Our Pin Lid does NOT work with Thermo's autogrid box. Slight blue tint allows for easy differentiation from other types of pin lids.
