C-flat™ Holey Carbon Films

C-flat™ is an ultra-flat, holey carbon film with a thickness of about 20 nm supported by a standard transmission electron microscopy (TEM) grid. The precise patent pending technology by which C-flat™ is manufactured eliminates artifacts such as excess carbon and edges around holes. The ultra-flat surface results in better particle dispersion and more uniform ice thickness. Manufactured without plastics, C-flat™ grids are clean upon arrival and the user has no residue to contend with. The C-flat™ carbon film has circular holes of defined size and interspace, e.g. CF 2/2 (pictured) has holes of 2 µm diameter with an interspace of 2 µm in both dimensions.

You have the following options to choose from:

C-flat™ film

  • CF 1.2/1.3 (1.2 µm hole diameter/1.3 µm hole spacing)
  • CF 2/1 (2 µm hole diameter/1 µm hole spacing)
  • CF 2/2 (2 µm hole diameter/2 µm hole spacing)
Supporting TEM grid material
  • Copper
  • Gold
Supporting TEM grid mesh size
  • 200
  • 300
  • 400
