EM-Tec gold series SEM specimen holders and pin stub adapters

EM-Tec gold series SEM specimen holders comprise a selection of compact SEM specimen holders, all made from brass and plated with 1µm of pure gold.  Brass is chosen for greater strength and is fully non-magnetic.

Gold plating assists in keeping the sample holders clean during handling. The superior chemical resistance of the gold plating facilitates the use of cleaning solutions or plasma cleaning. Clean sample holders surfaces will also greatly reduce contamination transfer to the samples. EM-Tec gold series SEM specimen holders are intended for use with table top SEMs, laboratory grade SEMs and FESEMs. EM-Tec gold series speimen holders and pin stub adapters currently available are:

  • EM-Tec GR2 – Tube/needle holder for up to Ø2mm diameter. Needle is clamped with a small stainless steel screw on the side. Ideal holder for Atomprobe sample needles. Made from brass and plated with 1µm of pure gold.
  • EM-Tec GS10 – A swivel vise which covers a full 180 angle and can also be rotated with the stub. This is the ultimate holder for imaging cross sections at any desired angle.  The swivel head size without clamping screws is only 16x16x14mm. The sample is clamped with the two clamping screws; the swivel head can be locked in place with the tilt clamping screw. Made from brass and plated with 1µm of pure gold.
