Purpose built for in situ cryo TEM sample liftouts
A cryo-compatible version of the Kleindiek micro-grippers that can be cooled to liquid nitrogen temperatures for in situ cryo TEM sample liftouts of site specific TEM slices prepared in cryo FIBs
Piezo-controlled. The gripper arms are manufactured from tungsten probe tips and are piezo-controlled, allowing a step size of less than 1 nm
Liquid nitrogen temperatures. Equipped with a thermal coupling that connects to your microscope‘s cryo shield or cryo stage enables the gripper to be cooled to liquid nitrogen temperature. This greatly reduces the thermal load for your microscope’s cooling system.
Intuitive GUI. The intuitive lift out (iLO) control software provides intuitive control over the micromanipulator’s motion.
