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

 Dry shipper is fine and the grids were not contaminated. Use express service and avoid shipping near the weekend.

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

 Desired, but I think it is difficult unless YOU bring the dewar to the destination.
