K-kit modelK-Kit wet cell liquid TEM sample holder chamber

The K-kit is an easy to use innovative sample holder for liquid specimens. It is a single-use sample holder with a sealable micro-channel between two silicon nitride membranes. The K-kit is made from silicon with Si3N4 membranes, using the latest MEMS technologies. Included with the K-kit is a copper aperture grid to mount the sealed wet cell. The k-kit is compatible with most standard TEM holders.

The microchannel, with two rectangular silicon nitride windows, enables imaging and analysis of nano-particles suspended in aqueous solutions. The size of the silicon nitride window is 300µm x 25µm with channel heights of 0.2 and 2µm. The inside of the microchannel is coated with Si3N4. Applications are wide ranging from, material, life, chemical and biological sciences.  Nanoparticles can be imaged in their native state or in-situ dynamic physical and/or chemical reactions can be observed. The K-kit can also be used in dry mode. The suspended particles are dried in the K-kit microchannel to avoid agglomeration which tends to occur when droplets of suspensions are dried on a support film. Compatible with FESEM – STEM detectors. The K-kits with the 30nm Si3N4 membranes are compatible with FESEM s equipped with a STEM detector when 25 – 30kV is used for imaging. The best results are achieved in dry mode.

analysing cross sections with FEI thermo DualBeam Systems
EBSD-3D sample holder for FEI / Thermo DualBeam SEM-FIB systems

The EBSD-3D sample holder for FEI / Thermo DualBeam FESEM/FIB systems permits FIB milling of the sample and subsequent acquisition of EBSD data. Repeatedly rotating the sample 180 between the milling and the EBSD mapping positions enables collecting 3D EBSD mapping data. This holder is to be used with the FEI EBS3 software and FEI / Thermo DualBeam systems. 
The EBSD-3D holder can be used to analyse either the surface or a cross-section of a sample. The angles on the EBSD-3D sample holder are 54° (short facet) and 36°  (long facet).  The sample holder is mounted in the centre of the sample stage with M6 fine thread. The sample stage should be set at 16° tilt.

Smooth side wall Molybdenum EM-Tec FIB lift-out grids

Smooth side wall EMTec Fib lift out grid

A common problem with Mo FIB lift-out grids is the roughness of the side wall. It takes valuable FIB time to smooth out the sidewall of the standard molybdenum FIB lift-out grids to enable secure mounting of the TEM lamellas. To solve this common problem and to reduce cost at the FIB, we have developed smooth side wall Mo EM-Tec FIB lift-out grids. They are made with a unique manufacturing process with the result that  smoothing with the FIB is virtually eleminated or reduced to a faction of the time previously needed. These unique Mo EM-Tec FIB lift-out grids have three posts and a thickness of 45-55µm. Packaging size is vial/25.
