Introduction

The EM-Tec spring-loaded vise type SEM sample holders are quick and easy to use. They hold the sample by clamping it between the moving jaws, this enables quick sample loading and reduces down time.  They are especially useful when similar samples or series of the same sample need to be examined. Using a spring-loaded SEM sample holder is easier, quicker and cleaner than using conductive adhesives or glue. A vise clamps the sample and provides the rigidity needed for high resolution imaging. The spring-loaded EM-Tec SEM sample holders currently available are:

  • EM-Tec VS8 mini spring-loaded vise for samples up to 8mm
  • EM-Tec VS12 compact single action spring-loaded vise for samples up to 12mm
  • EM-Tec VS12-T compact spring-loaded vise for up to 12mm with 0-90 degrees tilt capabilities
  • EM-Tec VS26 medium double action spring-loaded vise for samples up to 26mm
  • EM-Tec VS42 large universal double action spring-loaded vise for samples up to 42mm

The EM-Tec vise sample holders are available with pin and with an M4 threaded hole. For use on JEOL SEMs, we suggest to use an EM-Tec SEM stub adapter or an EM-Tec stage adapter.
