EM-Tec gripping stub and stub based vice holders

EM-Tec gripping stub and stub based vice holders are useful to grip and hold SEM specimens without much need for specimen preparation. Ideal for cross-section and edge-on imaging. The comprehensive selection of this type of cost-effective gripping and vice type holders is compatible with  SEMs using pin stubs (FEI, Zeiss, Tescan, Phenom SEMs using M4 thread (Hitachi and EM-Tec SEM stage adapters) and JEOL SEMs.

EM-Tec pin stub compatible gripping stub and stub based vice holders:

  • EM-Tec GS24 gripping stub holder with clamping plate to hold specimens or tissue up to 4mm thick.  Specimen is held by the clamping plate which is pushed with set screws. Also useful for holding tissue for dehydration and CDP processing.  Holder size is 24x13x12mm; fits in any SEM using standard 3.2mm pin stubs. Ref: McTurk, G., Bulman, S., Ocklefors, C.C. Journal of microscopy 127,233. 1982.
  • EM-Tec PS4 mini pin stub vice clamp for specimen thickness from 0-4mm. The specimen is held vertically with a small set screw. Most effective way to study cross sections of thin specimens. Holder size w/o pin is Ø12.7×7.2mm.
  • EM-Tec PS44 quadruple pin stub vice clamp for 4 specimens with 0-4mm thickness. The specimens are held vertically with 4 small set screws.  Most effective way to study cross sections or thin specimens. Holder size w/o pin is Ø25.4 x 7.2mm. Standard pin.
  • EM-Tec PV5 mini specimen vice clamp for specimen thickness from 0-5mm. The specimen is held vertically between the vice jaws. The vice jaws are tightened by a brass thumb screw. Holder size w/o pin is Ø12.2x17mm
  • EM-Tec PS6 mini pin stub split vice clamp for specimen thickness from 0-6mm. The specimen is clamped between the two mini vice clamps. The split vice jaws are closed by an allen screw. Closed split vice diameter is 12.7mm; when opened it is 19×12.7mm.
  • EM-Tec PS9 mini split mount vice clamp for specimen thickness from 0-8mm. The specimen is clamped between the two vice jaws of the split mount. The split mount vice jaws are closed by two allen screws. Closed split mount vice dimensions are Ø15x10mm; when opened 23x15x10mm.
  • EM-Tec PS7 mini pin stub dual slot vice with two slots of one mm wide. Ideal for holding thin wafer pieces specimens for cross section imaging. Specimens are clamped by set screws. Holder size w/o pin is Ø15x6mm.
  • EM-Tec PS12 pin stub vice clamp for specimen thickness from 0-12mm. The specimen is held vertically with a set screw.  Most effective way to study cross section of thin specimens. Holder size w/o pin is Ø25×7.2mm.
