Hitachi TM series basic SEM sample preparation supplies


Introduction
In addition to the SEM mounts and holders for the Hitachi TM series table top SEMs, basic SEM sample preparation supplies are indispensable for optimum sample preparation and correct imaging and analysis. They are conveniently grouped together on this page. Although the Hitachi TM series table top SEMs include operation modes to avoid charging it is good practice to work with conductive samples and to make sure that the samples are grounded by using conductive adhesives. It is recommended to coat the surface of non-conductive sample with a thin layer of gold, using a sputter coater. When using images to generate data for measurements, it is recommended to calibrate to the system the system first with an EM-Tec magnification calibration standard.


Basic sample preparation supplies

The folowing recommended basic SEM sample preparation supplies for the Hitachi TM can be conveniently ordered from this page. Additional information can be found on the relevant product pages.


Calibration tools for the Hitachi TM series table top SEMs
Recommended calibration tools for imaging and EDX analysis with the Hitachi TM series table top SEMs are:
