Ceramic Grids

Optically transparent ceramic grids with an integrated ceramic film coatings.

With increasingly diverse and specialized applications in both optical and electron microcopies, there is a growing demand for a specimen support that can be used in cross platform application. To help met these needs, SPI Supplies introduces a novel class of ceramic-based supports. SPI Supplies Ceramic Grids and Discs are a nanostructured alumina ceramic material (aluminum oxide) that are produced using a microfabrication process. They provide an alternative when other materials may be unsuitable.

Product Specs & Features
  • High thermal and chemical resistance.
  • Optically transparent, minimal fluorescence background.
