Vitrobot Foam Dewar & Metal Parts
The foam Vitrification Dewar and Metal Parts are compatible with the Vitrobot, and all of the parts are interchangeable with FEI versions of the foam dewar and metal parts. Furthermore, the dewar design provides an improved interface with the Igloo, creating a better seal to contain cold nitrogen gas.
Hybrid Grid Box
Hybrid Grid Box's patented design has separate pockets for unclipped grids and autogrids, securely cradling samples while allowing for unmatched ease in placement and removal. Makes for easier workflow with fewer grid boxes needed and easier traceability of samples from vitrification through imaging.
The Igloo interfaces with the Vitrobot vitrification dewar to reduce cryoEM sample contamination through multiple features, and creates an overall easier sample preparation process, leading to improved sample preparation efficiency.
The Cryo-Tweezers have modified reverse-action tweezers so that you don't have to fight with the Vitrobot tweezers and the black clip to hold grids. Plus the spring-loaded clamp makes placing and removing the tweezers from the plunge arm much smoother, making your life easier and reducing the number of wasted grids.
Easy to place condenser cap interfaces securely with the Vitrobot spider enabling "one-handed" ethane condensing, where the user can focus solely on controlling the ethane flow rate and the level of liquid ethane.
Easy to place lid can be quickly placed onto grid boxes during vitrification sessions to protect already frozen grids while they wait for the session to be complete. The weight of the stainless steel part keeps it securely in place.
Autogrid Inspection Tool
Tool enables a final check of clipping quality before loading autogrids into the autoloader cassette, potentially saving weeks in TEM down time, which is likely in the case of loading a poorly clipped grid that comes unclipped in the autoloader or column.
Autogrid tweezers for manipulation of autogrid cartridges, with same dimensions as the Thermo Fisher version, but with a significantly lower price.
Clipping Tool Repair
The inside barrel of the clipping tool will wear over time. This cumulative damage often results in difficulty seating C-clips at the tip of the tool without them popping out prematurely. Our service makes the barrel like new.
Cryo-Tweezer/Vitrobot Tweezer Repair
Tweezer tips are delicate and can easily be damaged with normal laboratory use. Rather than discard a tweezer with damaged tips, we can repair them and send them back to you in like-new condition.
Cryo-TEM Materials Characterization
We utilize nanomaterials expertise and state-of-the-art instrumentation to characterize nanomaterials, including polymer nanoparticles, liposomes, vesicles, micelles and any type of particle architecture.
