Geological Slide Holders
 
 
 

Overview Charles Lyell Image

Rave Scientific offers the EM-Tec geological thin section or petrographic slide holders which are specially designed to securely hold geological thin sections on petrographic slides for imaging and analysis with an SEM, EPMA or specially configured mineral analyzers. They are used for SEM/EDS imaging and analysis in geology, mineralogy and petrography. Currently we offer two types of geological thin section holders:

  • Geological thin section holders and slide holders with S-Clips
  • Reference type geological thin section holders with a reference edge

Geological thin section holders and slide holders with S-Clips

This design is compatible with petrographic slides measuring up to 47x27mm and enables the use of the most popular petrographic slide sizes up to 47x27mm. They are intended for SEM/EDS work. The geological slide holders with S-Clips comprise of one or more pockets of 47x27x1mm with slots and grooves to facilitate loading/unloading of the thinsections on slides with tweezers. The petrographic slides are securely held at the edges by two small S-clips. For non-standard or larger glass microscope slides, a useful alternative is the EM-Tec GO versatile slide holder.                                                                                                                      The four available geological thin section and slide holders are:

  • EM-Tec G0 universal slide holder with open sides to hold glass slides up to 75x50mm (3” x 2”)
  • EM-Tec G1 single petrographic slide holder with one 47x27mm pocket
  • EM-Tec G2 twin petrographic slide holder with two of the 47x27mm pockets
  • EM-Tec G4 four petrographic slide holder with four of the 47x27mm pockets

Reference type geological thin section holders with a top reference edge

In the reference type holder for the petrographic slides, the slides are pushed against a top reference edge to get a defined height. These holders are intended for SEM/EDS, SEM/WDS and even EPMA work. They are compatible with petrographic slides from 45x30mm to 48x28mm.The petrographic slides need to be loaded from the side and are pushed against the reference edge with a spring; they are held by spring tension. The opening of the holder is 40mm wide. There are two types of Reference holders for geological thin sections on petrographic slides:

  • EM-Tec RG2 twin petrographic slide top reference holder for two up to 48x28mm slides
  • EM-Tec RG4 four petrographic slide top reference holder for four up to 48x28mm slides

All EM-Tec petrographic slide section holders are available with a standard 3.2mm pin or with an M4 threaded hole.
