C-flat Holey Carbon Grids for TEM
C-flat™ is an ultra-flat, holey carbon-coated TEM support grid for transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Unlike competing holey carbon films, C-flat™ is manufactured without plastics, so it is clean upon arrival and the user has no residue to contend with.
- Cryo-electron tomography (cryoET) and Single Particle Analysis (SPA)
- Automated TEM
C-flat™ leads to better data sets. Made with patent pending technology, C-flat™ provides an ultra-flat surface that results in better particle dispersion and more uniform ice thickness. Patterning is done using deep-UV projection lithography, ensuring the most accurate and consistent hole shapes and sizes down to submicron features. The precise methods by which C-flat™ is manufactured elminate artifacts such as excess carbon and edges around holes.
