Downloadable PDFarrow13Support Film on Grids

Support Film on grids has become a main product line for us since the demand for high quality coated grids has increased. To make your microscopy work easier and to save you a great deal of time we offer you a complete line. All of our coated grids are optically checked followed by batch testing in the EM. Packed in grid storage box. All the grids below (except for the Beryllium Support Films) are also available with the following options:

  • Molybdenum grids in place of Au, Cu, or Ni
  • As Silicone free
  • With ultra-thin thickness (thickness can be requested)
  • Extra thick thickness

NOTE: All of our film is laid on the shiny side of the grid.

arrow114. Formvar/Silicon Monoxide

A formvar film stabilized with a thin film of silicon monoxide. Silicon monoxide produces a desirable support film because it offers low background contrast and it is stable under the electron beam and it is more hydrophilic than carbon film.

arrow116a. Lacey Carbon Film

This carbon coated film on a broken pattern consists of woven-mesh-like openings of different sizes and shapes. This type of pattern provides support but does not interfere when observing specimen sections.

NEW Continuous Ultrathin Films

The continuous ultrathin film on lacey film allows for the thinnest support film that still has adequate strength to withstand specimen preparation. The film (less than 3nm thick) lies across a carbon lacey film supported by a 200, 300, or 400 mesh grid. The size of the holes in the lacey film differ widely from batch to batch but are generally in the range of ¼ µm to 5µm, which gives the equivalent support of at least 6000 mesh grid. Specimen material lying over the covered holes can be imaged in the TEM with practically no interference from the carbon film supporting it. This product is ideal for looking at nanotubes, virus particles and other small particulate material.

arrow118. Beryllium Support Films

A deposition of 250 Angstroms thick Beryllium onto the 0.005" thick, 25 x 25 mm squares of a Cu substrate. The Be can be removed by dissolving the substrate in nitric acid (50:50). The Be film will then be removed from the acid, washed in distilled water and mounted on TEM grids. A Be support film will reduce background interference to a minimum and it is particularly useful where analyses for C or Si are required, so that these alternative supports cannot be used. Another advantage of the Be support is its very fine grain size which produces a very sharp ring pattern for in-situ calibration.
