Double Micromanipulator

This type of micromanipulator is based on the Diatome micromanipulator and provides great benefit for section collection in conjunction with the Leica EM Crion with charge mode. A ribbon can be easily manipulated and held in place with the use of a guided lash holder. It can be accurately attached onto the grid, which is positioned with a second guided grid holder, using the charge mode of the Leica EM Crion. Due to the rotatable grid holder, the grid can be easily stored in the gird box which is positioned inside the cryo-chamber (FC6 / FC7). Furthermore, a fresh grid can be picked up without taking out the grid holder which provides for continuing the section process.
