Leica EM KMR3 Knife Maker to prepare glass knives for ultramicrotomy
The balanced break method of the Leica EM KMR3 ensures perfect glass knives in three thicknesses 6,4 mm, 8 mm and 10 mm for semi-thin sections for EM and LM applications. The Leica EM KMR3 is easy to use and the automatic reset of breaking wheel and the scoring mechanism to “default” after a breaking cycle avoids handling errors.
E6700 Turbo Molecular Bench Top Vacuum Evaporator
It enables transmission and scanning electron microscopy (TEM and SEM) specimen preparation, like producing carbon support films, preparation of replicas, shadowing, aperture cleaning, etc. The usage of a turbo molecular vacuum pump ensures oil free vacuum chamber environments. The further benefits are: simple operations, rapid pump down and high vacuum operation (routinely 10-5/10-6mbar). All accessory power supplies are vacuum interlocked for user protection and cannot be energized unless the chamber is under vacuum. Mounted on a 300 mm (12”) diameter stainless steel base plate, the TEM set includes resistive evaporation sources for 6 mm diameter carbon rods, metal evaporation (tungsten basket), tiltable specimen holder and base, glow discharge work chamber and baseplate electrode. The jigging is a one piece assembly making it easy to remove or modify. A “cool” sputtering head (not routinely mounted) allows SEM sputter coating. The base has 10 ports through which electrical, vacuum and water connections can be made. A rotating source shutter is also available. A 250 mm (10”) diameter bell jar provides the vacuum chamber.
