Careful preparation of your samples and system are essential for effective use of environmental holders for in-situ imaging. A critical component of any holder system is a high-vacuum leak check station.
Our high-vacuum pumping station is a compact, all-in-one vacuum storage and seal-checking mechanism for TEM specimen holders. The station features short pumping and venting times, a low base pressure (<1e-6 mbar), and a glass viewing port to allow optical microscopy imaging for the holder tip. The integrated stereo-microscope allows researchers to inspect and test the seal of a liquid or gas cell assembly before loading it into the TEM, crucial for protecting vacuum quality.
A convenient, easy-to-use control-panel and a compact design make the check station a worthwhile addition to your electron microscopy laboratory.
