Title: Stable support films for electron microscopy

Abstract

This disclosure provides systems, methods, and apparatus related to arrangements including electron microscopy grids. In one aspect an arrangement includes an electron microscopy grid. The electron microscopy grid comprises a first surface and a second surface, with the first surface having a holey carbon film disposed thereon. A plurality of lipid molecules are disposed in a hole in the holey carbon film. Each lipid molecule of the plurality of lipid molecules has a hydrophilic head and a hydrophobic tail. A biotin-binding protein is attached to the hydrophilic heads of the plurality of lipid molecules. The biotin-binding protein is crystalline.
