C-flat™ Products now by EMS

Protochips™ and Electron Microscopy Sciences™ announce the immediate acquisition of the C-Flat™ and Au-flat™ product lines by EMS.

First launched in 2005, C-Flat has become an industry-standard TEM grid within the structural biology community. Largely driven by the rapid growth of CryoEM and Single Particle Analysis (SPA) techniques, millions of C-flat grids have been used to support samples and help identify structures including viruses and membrane proteins.

“With the rapid growth of Cryo-EM and increasing demand for sample supports, EMS is in the best position to scale the C-Flat and Au-flat products to meet the community’s needs in the coming years. This acquisition will also allow Protochips to accelerate our efforts in our fast growing in situ and software businesses for electron microscopy, powered by the new AXON™ machine vision platform,” states Dr. David Nackashi, CEO and Co-founder of Protochips, Inc.

“Electron Microscopy Sciences has been working with Protochips since 2005 and there is no better fit to continue to grow and solidify our position as a leader in the microscopy market in general and specifically in the Cryo-EM market. Taking C-Flat under our wing shows our commitment to furthering the growth of this amazing technology,“ states Stacie Kirsch, President of Electron Microscopy Sciences.

All C-Flat and Au-Flat products can now be purchased directly from EMS. The transition for customers will be a seamless experience.
