PELCO® Grid Storage Box

holds 50 transmission electron microscopy grids, compartments widely spaced for ease of use

Widely used compact grid box for 50 standard 3.05mm TEM grids with smoothly sliding clear plastic cover is matched to a tough, clean, self-lubricating base. The diamond-shaped grid compartments are designed to minimize awkward wrist or hand movements. The depth of the holes restricts grid movement when transported. The materials selected for the PELCO® Grid Box are static dissipative to avoid static charges on the grids. Dimensions: 77.5 x 41 x 9mm.

gilder grid storage box

Gilder Grid Box

for 100 Grids

Intended for use in both routine grid handling and long term grid storage. Holds 100 transmission electron microscopy grids. Each of the diamond shaped compartments will accept a standard 3.05mm grid. Each position has a letter and number molded into the surface of the box. To further ease grid handling, the plastics are anti-static treated. A central access position in the lid reduces the number of grids exposed when selecting any particular grid. Dimensions: 85 x 59 x 7mm.

Grid Storage Record Card
A record card is supplied free with each SB 100 grid box. The folding card has a durable coated exterior and the interior is suitable for writing with normal pen or pencil.

for routine handling and long time storage of 50 standard size TEM grids

The clear cover can be rotated smoothly once the slight resistance of the park position has been overcome, exposing a maximum of 2 or 3 diamond shaped holes at a time. The material is antistatic and the cover is self-lubricating, reducing friction.
The 50 diamond shaped holes have an alphanumeric reference system and each box is supplied with an indexed record card. The boxes can be stacked. Dimensions: 75 x 65 x 7.3mm.

MEM - Multi Purpose EM Grid Boxes

The MEM grid boxes incorporate a number of innovations for improved ease of use, more secure storage and integrated documentation.
grid being placed in a multi purpose em grid box
grid being placed in #196-32

Innovations integrated in the MEM grid boxes are:

  • "Tree" shaped TEM grid storage cavity virtually eliminates the chances of damaging the TEM grids - The grid storage cavity and the tweezers cavity have a separation wall so that the tweezers will only be able to grip the edge of the grids
  • The additional slider with a window between cover and grid storage box exposes only 4 grids at the time and prevents grids from falling or "jumping" out of the storage box.
  • Integrated grid storage record card inserted in a dedicated slot on the back of the MEM grid box.
  • The storage box body is made of white plastic providing good contrast. The cover lid and the slider with window are both made from clear plastic providing clear visibility.

There are two versions of the MEM grid boxes:
  • 161-96 - store up to 96 grids, size 81 x 54 x 10mm
  • 161-32 - store up to 32 grids and up to 8 blocks, size 81 x 54 x 14mm
  • US Patent #7619225

cryo grid boxes for gatan 626 and ct3500 cryo transfer systems

Cryo Grid Boxes for Cryo Systems & Cryo Applications

The Cryo Grid boxes are used for transferring, storing and manipulating vitrified cryo TEM specimens (i.e. on Quantifoil TEM grids) made with cryo-devices like the FEI Vitrobot, Gatan CP3, Leica EM 6P and other cryo vitrification systems. There are two versions of these boxes, each with 4 storage positions. The round one is the most widely used and is available in 3 versions: with clear lid, pin type lid, and without lid. They can be used on the Gatan 626 and CT3500 cryo transfer systems and on the FEI Vitrobot and Gatan CP3. The square Cryo TEM grid box includes a non-static rotatable lid and fits the Gatan CT3500 Cryotrans and Gatan CP3. All of the boxes have a UNC 5/40 thread in the center. On versions with clear lids, the lid is held in place with a stainless steel screw.

PELCO® TEM Grid Vacuum Desiccator

PELCO® TEM Grid Vacuum Desiccator

This robust PELCO® TEM Grid Vacuum Desiccator holds up to 50 TEM grids in the grid box with a rotary lid with a slot hole to prevent the rest of the grids from falling out. Storage under vacuum eliminates contamination or dust and is ideal to preserve hygroscopic samples. The use of durable, non-outgassing, black anodized aluminum and silicon O-rings makes it suitable for pumping down to 10-3 mbar. Capable of holding vacuum for many months. Metal vacuum valve with PTFE shaft seal. Use a small vacuum pump to evacuate. Vacuum connection for pump-down is a 1/4" (6.35mm) barb fitting.

  • Keeps TEM samples and calibration standards contamination free
  • Prevents oxidization of sensitive samples
  • Holds up to 50 TEM grids secured under lid
  • Acrylic disc for visibility
  • Ideal for storing, transporting and shipping.

Overall size w/o vacuum valve is ø76 x 35mm (3" x 1.4").
