The Proton Grenade (Test Tubes)[1][2] was one of two gadgets developed that act as grenades by Jillian Holtzmann; in the 2016 movie.


Developed from the Proton Grenade (Air Filter Prototype), Proton Grenade (Test Tubes)'s were not utilized until later as an alternative to Proton Grenade (Air Filter). Three Proton Grenades were stored on an ammo shoulder strap before the Ghostbusters departed for The Mercado Hotel. They were used by Holtzmann against several ghosts in the Times Square battle.
