Stages for Leica EM TIC 3X
Rotary stage (retrofittable) has specially been designed for large area milling (flat milling). The ion beam prepared area is exceeding Ø 25 mm.
Cooling stage provides very low temperature processing. With temperatures of the sample holder and mask down to -160°C, extremely heat sensitive samples such as rubber, water soluble polymer fibers or even marshmallows (if desired) can be processed to a high quality.
Various sample holders
Various sample holders for almost every sample size and a wide range of use are available e.g. one sample holder for the complete process from mechanical pre-preparation (Leica EM TXP) to ion beam slope cutting (Leica EM TIC 3X) to SEM investigation to the point of storage.
