We are now able to offer the full range of C Flat and Quantifoil carbon films that are required for many of todays more demanding microscopy techniques. Please just search for C-Flat or Quantifoil. They are located within the Grids & Specimen Supports Section.

Platinum Blue TEM Stain (Uranyl Acetate Alternative)

We can now supply a platinum blue stock solution for those customers where Uranyl acetate is unavailable due to shipping limitations or prohibited by local regulations. In some cases results can match UA but there is insufficient experience as yet to identify where it may have less effective staining. We will keep a dossier on customer experiences and update progress as we gain more information. Our cat. no. S473.

The Gilder EM5 is a newly designed polypropylene 8mm Ų capsule system with a 5 block base each tapering to a 2mm cylindrical cone cap and numbered 1-5. Separate base and body tube sections (1 & 2 shown left) when clipped together form the familiar capsule shape. Resin is easily removed from the system by separating the parts by hand and pushing the cured block out. Blocks up to 20mm in length can be produced but shorter blocks allow easier removal whilst the separate cone base permits easy access for manipulation of specimens. Catalogue no. C317/INT

TAAB replacement resin for Spurr

ERL 4206 is no longer manufactured. As this is a major component of the Spurr resin kit, it means that any stocks remaining will soon be depleted and this resin will no longer be available. Although ERL 4221D (a more viscous form of ERL) can be used as a replacement (see our S024/D), there can be differences between 4206 and 4221D that affect the outcome of the final block and may require changes to protocols. To overcome any possible difficulties, TAAB has developed a new and safer resin to replace Spurr.

This is TAAB`s Low Viscosity resin (TLV). Please contact us for data sheets and a free-of-charge sample. TAAB has produced a standard resin kit (T049)and a range of premix resin kits (T262) to replace the Spurr range of products.
