Interchangeable Modular SEM Specimen Holders

PELCO® SEM Specimen Holders,
the Modular Concept

The PELCO® Modular SEM Specimen Holder System offers the most comprehensive and cost effective range of specimen holders available today with full interchangeability between SEM models or brands. If you are using different models of SEMs in one location or your new SEM comes from a different manufacturer, you can continue to use the PELCO® Modular SEM Specimen Holders by adding just the appropriate SEM stage adapter. The PELCO® SEM Specimen Holders offer capabilities not available from SEM manufacturers or specimen holders supplied with the SEM. New specimen holders are added on a regular basis.

Features of the PELCO® Modular SEM Specimen Holder System:

  • Full interchangeability between SEM platforms
  • Stage adapters for all SEM brands:
    • Hitachi
    • FEI / Philips
    • JEOL
    • ZEISS / LEO
    • Tescan
    • Amray
    • ISI / ABT / Topcon
    • CamScan
    • LEICA / Cambridge instruments
  • Built-in grounding contacts
  • Easy specimen load / unload
  • Low profile versions compatible with airlocks
  • Single and multiple specimen holders
  • Mix, match and upgrade to meet your needs
  • All PELCO® Modular SEM Specimen Holders have an M4 threaded connection and are compatible with any Hitachi SEM with an M4 thread stage adapter

The PELCO® Modular SEM Specimen Holder System consists of a selection of stage adapters for most commercially available SEMs, an extensive range of interchangeable SEM Specimen Holders and adapter buttons for some of the SEM stage adapters.

All Stage Adapters use either an M4 screw (supplied) or M4 thread to attach the SEM specimen holders. All SEM specimen holders have M4 thread in the bottom of the holders. The Modular SEM Specimen Holders will fit directly on the Hitachi style stage with M4 thread.

Only the Dovetail style Stage Adapters for JEOL and Zeiss/LEO need either a Short Button or an Extended Button to attach the Modular SEM Specimen Holder to the Stage Adapter.
