  • Application Area: Cryo preparation samples for TEM

"User friendly software. Reproducible conditions: temperature, chamber humidity and blotting. Fragile tweezers- the tweezers must be used very carefully."

"This is an excellent instrument for rapid-freezing, it's very user friendly. It allows the user to perform single side blotting which is very good. I would recommend this equipment to other scientists."

Outstanding reproducibility and sample quality

For the preparation of vitrified fluid samples or extremely thin samples for cryo-TEM, including biological suspensions and industrial emulsions in both, aqueous and inorganic solvents.  

The updated version of the EM GP automatic plunge freezer is based on our motto ‘with the users for the user’ in combining performance and flexibility in a practically-relevant way. 

The EM GP2 plunge freezes fluid or extremely thin samples spread on an electron microscopy grid into liquid ethane after removing excess fluid by automatic blotting. Prior to freezing the sample is maintained in a temperature and humidity controlled environmental chamber, adjustable between +4°C and +60°C and room humidity to 99 %.
