Short summary
In this manuscript we describe technical and analytical advances that have been implemented for use with the Frankfurt ice nuclei measurement system known as FRIDGE. In particular we focus on a new collection apparatus and improved data analysis protocol. We also provide an outline of how FRIDGE data should be interpreted and reported. Results from an example case study are presented and help to contextualize FRIDGE data with respect to other measurement techniques and modeling efforts.
