SEM specimen sampling kits

EM-Tec SEM specimen sampling kits from Micro to Nano are ideal for collecting powders, fibres, fragments, small particles, etc. for SEM/EDS analysis with reduced risk of cross contamination.

EM-Tec SEM specimen sampling kits comprise a pin stub, a mounted EM-Tec high purity adhesive carbon tab all in an self-contained EM-Tec storage tube. Each pin stub with a mounted carbon tab is firmly held in the cap of the storage tube.  The carbon tab is protected against contamination with a protective foil which is removed just before use.

Micro to Nano EM-Tec SEM sampling kits are well suited for:

  • Asbestos analysis
  • Environmental and forensic sampling
  • Collection of fibres
  • Particle sampling
  • Collection of paint chips or glass fragments
  • Collection of filter residues
  • Powder samples
  • Gunshot residue (GSR) collection

Collection of samples is best done with the pin stub still in the plastic cap; remove the protective plastic cover from the adhesive tabs just before use. After collection of your sample replace the clear tube cover. For a contamination-free workflow it is highly recommended to use the specifically designed Micro to Nano EM-Tec SEM pin stub grippers for placing the pin stubs in the SEM specimen holder.
