Advantages: 

This system is ideal for researchers who want to reproducibly remove organic surface contaminants in a safe, efficient manner.

  • Integrated holder bakeout and storage: Reduces tool footprint and cost of ownership
  • Enhanced user interface: Use preoptimized recipes for consistent results; as well as guided workflows to ensure proper operation when venting and evacuating the chamber
  • Low-power operation (2 W): Gently clean delicate samples (e.g., holey carbon grids); as well as prepare hydrophilic surfaces on carbon grids for cryo-electron microscopy
  • New system, same great performance: Remove hydrocarbons on TEM and SEM samples that may impact analysis
