Air-free TransferHow It Works

The protective environment Air-Free Transfer TEM holders protect your TEM sample from exposure to air between the preparation chamber and the TEM when the sample is air sensitive.

After the TEM sample chip or 3 mm grid is loaded in the TEM holder tip inside the preparation chamber (e.g. a glove box) the entire tip of the holder with the sample retracts into the body of the holder and is hermetically sealed to keep inert gas or a high vacuum environment around the sample.

Once inside the TEM, the sample chamber can be opened to allow TEM imaging and/or in-situ TEM experiments with the sample.
