The Gentle Asher offered by ibss Group has been specifically designed to expand the GV10x investment for sample cleaning prior to inserting into the EM chamber. The Gentle Asher Chamber, which is integrated with a GV10x connected GA/GV, is ideal for preventing black scan square deposits.
Once the EM chamber is de-contaminated to the required HC levels, the DS process can be utilized for cleaning and storing the sample by simply shifting the GVx Source onto the Gentle Asher Chamber. This technique easily and effectively removes impurities from samples and TEM holders without causing any considerable damage and at the same time controls hydrocarbon levels in SEM, TEM, CDSEM and FIB. When samples and holders are pre-cleaned, it prevents contamination of the chamber gas phase and reduces the time involved in microscope cleanings.
The product features of the Gentle Asher are:
Prevents black scan square deposits
Removes contamination from samples and TEM holders without any significant damage
Controls HC levels in SEM, TEM, CDSEM and FIB
