K-kit Wet "Liquid" TEM Kit

An Innovative Enclosed Specimen Holder for Liquid TEM

K-kits are sample holders designed to facilitate convenient TEM observation of liquid samples, allowing nanoobjects, aggregates, and agglomerates (NOAAs) in liquid samples to be characterized.

With vacuum compatible sealing of liquids in electron-transmitting thickness, K-kits are micro reaction chambers for countless experiments in materials, chemical, and biological research.

Features

  • Applicable for most TEM holder brands
  • Strong structural reliability under vacuum
  • Sealing glue compatible to many solvents
  • Disposable
  • Free of cross-contamination
  • Easy to use

Wet and Thin Layer Mode of K-kit

The K-Kit can be used in either Wet Mode or Thin Layer Mode.

Wet Mode: The loaded liquid sample is sealed and imaged using TEM in the native liquid environment.

Thin Layer Mode: A patented liquid drying protocol preserves the original morphology and physical state of nanomaterials with improved imaging resolution.

Sample Preparation Wet Mode Thin Layer Mode

Imaging Resolution Good Excellent
Gap Size (Considered) 300~500nm 2000~3000nm
Particle Size (Loadable) 10nm~300nm 3nm~2000nm
Particle Shape Keeping original Potentially, could be deformed.
Chemical Reduction or Potential Damage by Electron Energy High Low
Possible States of K-Kit Liquid fully filled Thin liquid layer on wall
Liquid partially filled Dry state
