Hitachi TM Series Basic Sample Preparation Supplies

 

 Screen Shot 2017 06 10 at 6.49.07 PMOverview

In addition to the SEM mounts and holders for the Hitachi TM series table top SEMs, basic SEM sample preparation supplies are indispensable for optimum sample preparation and correct imaging and analysis. They are conveniently grouped together on this page. Although the Hitachi TM series table top SEMs include operation modes to avoid charging it is good practice to work with conductive samples and to make sure that the samples are grounded by using conductive adhesives. It is recommended to coat the surface of non-conductive sample with a thin layer of gold, using a sputter coater. When using images to generate data for measurements, it is recommended to calibrate to the system the system first with an EM-Tec magnification calibration standard. In addition we offer a complete user and starter kit.

The Rave Scientific Hitachi TM Series user kit provides a flexible and easy way to purchase a comprehensive kit of the required basic sample preparation consumables and calibration standards. Standards are required for checking magnification, EDS and resolution in the electron microscope. All sample holders and standards are fully compatible with the Hitachi TM3030plus, TM3030, TM3000 & TM1000. This kit also includes a set of 5 sample preparation tweezers, the Hitachi TM30 stage adapter kit assembly, allowing any M4 designed sample holder to be compatible, 5 versatile sample holders, including the variable 0-90° angle tilt holder, valuable when there is no tilt option on your Hitachi  system. The kit is also configured to be compatible with both pin stubs and HItachi M4 stubs. The kit is available in two versions, with and without calibration samples. Below is the list of parts and the downloadable brochure.                                                                                                                             Hitachi TM series Starter Kit Brochure
