Advantages: 

Cryo-transfer holders are used in applications that require low-temperature transfer and observation of frozen-hydrated specimens for cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM).

  • Cryo-workstation provides protected environment for loading specimen into holder
  • Cryo-shield encapsulates frozen-hydrated specimen to protect it from contamination during atmospheric transfers from cryo-workstation to the transmission electron microscope (TEM)
