Some TMNT stuff really isn't for little kids.

In the Ghostbusters' dimension, the ecto-containment unit is the final repository for the various ghosts and other entities that the Ghostbusters have captured. In the Ghostbusters Secondary Canon as published by IDW Publishing, there is more than one containment unit: Besides the primary containment unit in the Firehouse's basement, there is also a portable containment unit on their Ecto-2 vehicle. Ghost traps are similar to containment units, but are much smaller and used for temporary entrapment of ghosts until they can be deposited in a larger, more permanent containment unit.

In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters, the Firehouse containment unit's self-contained power source was used by Egon Spengler and Donatello to construct a teleporter from Professor Zayton Honeycutt's blueprints which Donatello and Harold Lillja had already used to build another teleporter in Harold Lillja's laboratory in the dimension of the Turtles' Earth. However, this new teleporter required more power than anticipated, with the heavy power drain destabilizing the containment grid and forcing the two scientists to quickly repair it to avoid a massive explosion.

In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters 2, the two scientists joined forces again in order to entrap the Collectors, which they deduced could only happen if they created a dimensional gateway into the containment unit itself. After some trial and error, they successfully created a gate into the high-powered containment unit, and pulled the Collectors inside, including the ghost of Darius Dun who had taken control of the Collectors.
