The novel EM-Tec GB-30 TEM grid boxes have a capacity of 30 standard 3.05 TEM grids and are useful for long term storage, transport and routine handling. The EM-Tec GB-30 consists of two parts. The body with 30 uniquely tree shaped compartments made from reduced static ABS. A clear odorless acrylic lid which slides over the body to close the compartments.
Each position is referenced by numbers and letters molded on the grid storage box. The unique tree shaped cavity provides extra protection for samples on the TEM grid; when the TEM grid is picked up at the base of the tree the tweezers tips pick up the grid at the rim and are prevented from accidentally touching the sample on the grid.
The extended lips at each end of the EM-Tec GB-30 TEM grid box makes this grid box the same size as a standard microscope slide. This enables the EM-Tec GB-30 TEM grid boxes to be stored in standard microscope slide boxes. The EM-Tec GB-30 are thicker than standard microscope slides and take the space of two slots in a slide storage box. Dimensions of are 76 x 25 x 6.5mm
