Liquid in-situ  holders – offered through partnership with DENSsolutions1

The Ocean in-situ TEM liquid series empowers researchers to image materials and biological samples in a contained MEMS based cell – called the Nano-Cell. The Nano-Cell ensures the sample is fully hydrated and the liquid can be controlled in either a static or flowing condition. This Ocean Series opens up many new and exciting research fields, and transforms your TEM into a in-situ liquid characterization laboratory.

  • High resolution to exceed the spatial resolution of optical microscopy for samples in liquid
  • Modular design with removable tip prevents clogs and eliminates experimental cross-contamination
  • Dual-orientation tip can be rotated by 180° to optimize for TEM or STEM imaging
  • Native environment keeps the sample in a natural liquid state
  • Controllable environment to adjust the type of liquid and flow rate around the sample
  • Experimental safety with leak check tool enables known good liquid experiments to be loaded into the TEM
  • Easy to use tip is designed for leak-free quick assembly without overpressure to Nano-Cell
