introduction

The FlowView Aquarius liquid sample chamberis an easy to use tool to image and analyse liquids, suspensions, solutions, slurries, pastes and other materials which would evaporate quickly in vacuum. The FlowView Aquarius sample chamber is a single-use liquid sample chamber with a an electron transparent Silicon Nitride membrane to keep the liquid specimen intact. There are three Si3N4 membrane types available:

  • Aquarius chips with 50 nm thickness and 150x150x um window for standard application
  • Aquarius chips with 20 nm thickness and 20x20 um window for high resolution application
  • Aquarius chips with 30 nm thickness and 250 x 250 um window for large area observations.

The high resolution chips allow for imaging objects smaller than 10nm.The FlowVIewAquarius liquid sample chambers are primarily developed for materials analysis and particle analysis applications. The three component sample chamber is easy to use with specially developed preparation tools and resembles an SEM specimen stub when prepared for use in the SEM. The FlowView Aquarius liquid chambers with M4 threaded sample stubs are directly compatible with Hitachi SEMs and with SEMS using pin stubs by using the supplied pins tub adapter. For first time users we advise to purchase the FlowView starter kit and purchase more liquid sample chambers when needed. The silicon nitride window is held in a silicon frame. These are both relatively inert materials and are compatible with water, solvents, oils, fuels, mild acids and mild alkalis. Application examples are:

  • Nano-particle reserach
  • Quality control of solutions and suspensions
  • X-ray analysis of nano-particles
  • Direct SEM observation of liquid samples w/o drying
  • Analysis of particle inclusions in oils, grease, fuels or pastes

The FlowView Aquarius starter kit includes:

  • 24 Aquarius liquid sample chambers
  • 24 Aquirius chips with electron transparent membrane
  • tweezers for picking up the membrane chips
  • precision pipette
  • 24 tips
  • 1 O-ring
  • 1 Gasket
  • Acrylic liquid chamber standard
  • Acrylic liquid chamber closing cap
  • 1 pin stub adapter
  • storage case
  • FlowView image analysis software

FlowView image analysis software
The FlowView image analysis software is included in the FlowView liquid sample starter kit and features:

  • Easy to use with user friendly design
  • Multiple functions to include Particle size distribution, dispersion and particle shape analysis
  • Fully automatic iamge analysis with a single button
  • Fast analysis – typically within 1 minute for liquid sample images
