Ultrastable Gold Support Films for Electron Cryomicroscopy.

During imaging at cryo-temperatures, traditional Carbon support films can sometimes move, particularly at the beginning of irradiation. This movement blurs images and makes it difficult to determine the structures of small and challenging molecules. UltrAuFoil® Holey Gold films will reduce the movement of frozen specimens during imaging and improve image contrast and quality leading to better 3D reconstructions with less data.

Designed at MRC’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology by Dr Christopher J Russo and Dr Lori A Passmore and produced by Quantifoil Micro Tools (For details see: Ultrastable gold substrates for electron cryomicroscopy, Science, 2014, Vol. 346 no. 6215 pp. 1377-1380)
