Plasma Cleaners for Electron Microscopy

Our low cost plasma cleaners / plasma ashers for electron microscopy users are designed specifically for fast and efficient cleaning of sample holders and individual grids and stubs.

Our plasma cleaner / plasma asher range for electron microscopy are fully automated bench-top plasma cleaners that come with standard adapters which are suitable for the sample holders supplied with all the major microscope manufacturers. The plasma output power is fully variable over the range 0-100W, resulting in a very controllable & gentle cleaning process. Common sources of error inside the microscope are clearly reduced with plasma cleaning and the dwell time during the measurement is significantly increased.

‘Plasma Cleaning of TEM Sample Holders’ Application Note

We have a detailed Application Note made in collaboration with Johnson Matthey Technology Centre on the effective and controlled plasma cleaning of TEM sample holders.

“In conclusion, the Henniker HPT plasma cleaner was observed to be suitable for TEM preparation purposes because it offers amazing control over how much carbon is removed from samples. It is suitable for catalyst samples on carbon for hydrocarbon contamination cleaning in the TEM.”

Dr. Dogan Ozkaya (Johnson Matthey Technology Centre);
