The Vacuum Storage Container is a portable device for the vacuum storage and transport of plasma cleaned specimens and transmission electron microscope (TEM) specimen holders. A high-precision valve assembly ensures vacuum integrity for prolonged periods. The Vacuum Storage Container is typically evacuated through the use of theModel 1020 Plasma Cleaneror theModel 1070 NanoClean.
The specimen portion of the TEM specimen holder can be directly observed through a sight glass. An aluminum outer housing provides a high degree of protection to the specimen holder, which enables the safe transportation of specimen holders under clean, vacuum conditions.
