EM-Tec spring-loaded SEM sample holders

EM-Tec spring-loaded vice type SEM sample holders are quick and easy to use. They hold the sample by clamping it between the moving jaws, this enables quick sample loading and reduces down time.  They are especially useful when similar samples or series of the same sample need to be examined. Using a spring-loaded SEM sample holder is easier, quicker and cleaner than using conductive adhesives or glue. A vice clamps the sample and provides the rigidity needed for high resolution imaging. The spring-loaded EM-Tec SEM sample holders currently available are:

  • EM-Tec VS8 mini spring-loaded vice for samples up to 8mm
  • EM-Tec VS12 compact single action spring-loaded vice for samples up to 12mm
  • EM-Tec VS12-T compact spring-loaded vice for up to 12mm with 0-90 degrees tilt capabilities
  • EM-Tec VS26 medium double action spring-loaded vice for samples up to 26mm
  • EM-Tec VS42 large universal double action spring-loaded vice for samples up to 42mm

The EM-Tec vice sample holders are available with pin and with an M4 threaded hole. For use on JEOL SEMs, we suggest to use an EM-Tec SEM stub adapter or an EM-Tec stage adapter.
