Quick Overview

The PP3010 is a highly automated, easy to use, column-mounted, gas-cooled cryo preparation system suitable for most makes and models of SEM, FE-SEM and FIB/SEM.

Key Features

  • High resolution performance on SEM, FE-SEM and FIB/SEMs
  • Totally gas cooled, including cryo preparation chamber – no boiling nitrogen on the SEM
  • Efficient cooling (down to at least -190°C)
  • 24 hours plus run times on one fill of LN2 are typical – allowing unattended overnight operation (at typical operating temperatures)
  • Large recipe driven touch-screen interface
  • Automated sublimation, coating and system start up
  • Superb specimen visibility (including preparation chamber CCD camera)
  • Fully compatible with SEM beam deceleration/stage bias modes up to 5kV
  • Off column cooling and pumping systems – minimum mass on the SEM
  • On-screen data logging and diagnostics
  • Pumped storage of the cryo transfer device
  • Prepdek® workstation – self contained work area, extra bench space not required
  • Cryo workflow options
  • Specialist support and three-year warranty

Product Description

The PP3010 is a highly automated, easy-to-use, column-mounted, gas-cooled cryo preparation system suitable for most makes and models of SEM, FE-SEM and FIB/SEM.

The PP3010 has all the facilities needed to rapidly freeze, process and transfer specimens. The cryo preparation chamber is turbomolecular pumped and includes tools for cold fracturing, controlled automatic sublimation and sputter coating. After processing, the specimen is transferred from the cryo preparation chamber onto a highly stable SEM cold stage for observation. Cold trapping in the cryo preparation chamber and SEM chamber ensures the whole process is frost-free. Specimen process times are typically between five and ten minutes.

Mounting, Freezing and Transferring Specimens – Easy with the Prepdek® Workstation

The PP3010 Prepdek® workstation is fitted with a slushy nitrogen freezing station, connected to the pumping system. Rapid freezing reduces ice crystal damage and results in improved specimen preservation. For handling pre-frozen material the Prepdek® freezing system allows specimens that have been frozen by alternative freezing methods (or stored field specimens) to be manipulated – in or just above liquid nitrogen – and then transferred under vacuum into the PP3010 preparation chamber for subsequent processing and observation.

Additionally the TEM Prep Slusher and Glove Box Interface/Airlock options allow workflow amongst a range of other platforms, including cryo-TEM, cryoultramicrome, XPS and glove box.

Cryo Transfer Device – Including Vacuum Storage

The vacuum transfer device is compact (fits easily into one hand), reliably vacuum-tight and has a bayonet connection to the specimen shuttle to ensure rapid pick up and transfer.

Set into the Prepdek® work surface is a pumped storage tube for the cryo transfer device (see Prepdek® workstation section below).
