K1250X 'Off-Column' Turbo Cryo-SEM Preparation System

K1250X 'Off-Column' Turbo Cryo-SEM Preparation System

Off-column cryo-SEM system from the former Emitech product range. Discontinued in 2010.

Modern equivalent:

PP2000 and PP2000T Cryo-SEM Preparation Systems

PP2000 and PP2000T Cryo-SEM Preparation Systems

The PP2000 and PP2000T were column-mounted, gas-cooled cryo preparation systems suitable for most makes and models of SEM, FE-SEM and FIB/SEM. Both systems included all the facilities needed to rapidly freeze and transfer specimen, plus tools for cold fracturing, controlled sublimation and specimen coating. Cold trapping in the cryo preparation chamber and SEM chamber ensured the whole process was frost free. Discontinued in 2011.

Modern equivalent:

PP3000T Cryo-SEM Preparation System

PP3000T Cryo-SEM Preparation System

The PP3000T is a highly automated, easy to use, column-mounted, gas-cooled cryo preparation system suitable for most makes and models of SEM and FE-SEM. The PP3000T has all the facilities needed to rapidly freeze and transfer specimens. The cryo preparation chamber is turbomolecular pumped and includes tools for cold fracturing, controlled sublimation and specimen coating. The specimen can then be transferred onto a highly stable SEM cold stage for observation. Cold trapping in the cryo preparation chamber and SEM chamber ensures the whole process is frost free.
