Tem sample plasma cleaners

Our low cost plasma cleaners / plasma ashers for TEM sample holders are designed specifically for fast and efficient cleaning.

The TEM sample plasma cleaners / plasma ashers are fully automated and comes with standard adapters which are suitable for the sample holders supplied with all the major microscope manufacturers. The plasma output power is fully variable over the range 0-100W, resulting in a very controllable & gentle cleaning process. Common sources of error inside the TEM are clearly reduced with plasma cleaning and the dwell time during the measurement is significantly increased.

The TEM plasma cleaner / plasma asher is an application specific solution for low pressure plasma cleaning and preparation of electron microscopy samples, including:

  • Low power operation
  • Front feed of TEM sample holder<
  • Multiple TEM grids and SEM stub cleaning<
  • Re-entrant style sample holder introduction
  • Dual gas inlets for O2/Ar and other gases
