Dear colleagues,

I am wondering what people are using out there to ship frozen vitrified grids. 

Are the dry shippers used by crystallographers good for frozen grids? Do the grids get ice contaminated in a dry shipper? 

Do they need to be shipped in LN2 in a regular dewar?

I am interested to know if any of you had any experiences in this matter.
