RALEIGH, N.C., June 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — First launched in 2005, C-Flat has become the 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 best positioned to scale the C-Flat and Au-flat products to provide for a growing market demand over 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.

“EMS has been working with Protochips to provide these product lines since 2005 and we anticipate the acquisition will solidify our position as a leader in the microscopy market and specifically the Cryo-EM market. The acquisition of these product lines enforces our commitment to furthering the growth of this innovative 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.
