Leica’s Array Tomography solution

ARTOS 3D Provides automated serial sectioning of hundreds of slices in one run. Sections can be easily collected onto a Si wafer or an ITO coated glass slide.

With ARTOS 3D there is no need for a special plasma etching device. Unlike common tedious sample preparation methods, the new ARTOS 3D offers an innovative technique to simplify the workflow significantly.

  • The specially developed 4mm high precision diamond knife on a fully motorized stage makes it possible to accept a wide-range of substrates and collect accurately measured section ribbons on the carrier in the most careful manner without wrinkling. 
  • Integrated direct section ribbon collection preserves section quality and the small size of a section carrier fits to every chamber, allowing a high section density for SEM analysis. 
  • The innovative design of ARTOS 3D dynamically isolates environmental vibration and eliminates thickness variation due to air turbulences.
