You will get an email explaing the next steps. If the grids are already made at home institute then they can be transported in a dry shipper before the day of data collection. However, we note that domestic transport of dry shipper by air is not possible (as far as we are aware) and these need to be brought by road transport or train. If the grids need to be made at the facility then the protein has to be shipped before hand or brought along with the researcher.
