Observing real-time dynamics inside your TEM.
DENSsolutions offers a complete suite of In-Situ Sample Management Solutions for Heating, Biasing, Gases & Liquids in Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEMs). These solutions utilise MEMS devices, called Nano-Chips, to control the sample’s environmental surroundings and replicate real-life application conditions inside your TEM. The introduction of in-situ capabilities into a TEM, transforms the system from a static imaging tool into a multi-functional laboratory.
All DENSsolutions systems allow investigations of samples such that the dynamics can be directly observed at high resolution with the most accurate & reliable performance through localised and continuous temperature feedback. Optimised versions for both Jeol & Thermo Fisher Scientific TEMs are available.
