Preserve sample integrity with controlled transfer from an inert environment to the TEM.

Advantages Research Spotlight Media Library Publications Resources Back to top

Transmission electron microscope (TEM) vacuum transfer holders are used in applications that require transfer of specimen from a preparation station (glove box or vacuum chamber) into TEM under vacuum or controlled atmospheric conditions. 

  • When configured for energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS) applications, the beryllium cradle is designed to provide a clear path between the sample and the detector to reduce shadowing for EDS analysis
