Phenom basic SEM sample preparation supplies


In addition to the SEM mounts and holders for the Phenom SEMs, basic SEM sample preparation supplies are indispensable for optimum sample preparation and correct imaging and analysis. They are conveniently presented together on this page. Although the Phenom table top SEMs include operation to avoid charging it is good practice to work with conductive samples and to make sure that the samples are grounded by using conductive adhesives. It is recommended to coat the surface of non-conductive sample with a thin layer of gold, using a sputter coater. When using images to generate data for measurements, it is recommended to calibrate to the system the system first with an EM-Tec magnification calibration standard.
