Holey Carbon Films for TEM Sample Support - Agar Scientific

Holey carbon films supplied by Agar Scientific have many applications in microscopy; however, for some applications the mesh sizes of traditional TEM grids are too large to support the sample. Also, continuous carbon films can be an issue as the thin film can inelastically disperse electrons and contribute to background noise.

Holey carbon films provide a suitable alternative as they have holes of different sizes up to 100µm. Besides providing support, the improved image contrast in the regions of the holes compared to regions of film is of significant benefit. Standard applications include cryo-TEM and biological and materials science.

Holey carbon support films are available as 25 or 50 grids in a grid box and can be applied to other grid sizes, material or type.

Agar's range of holey carbon films is detailed in the table below:
