Direct Docking Kit for Thermo Fisher Helios DualBeam™ FIB-SEM


A direct docking package UHVCTM to Helios, without QuickLoader- i.e. attach the UHVCTM to the main chamber (Port L) and transfer the sample carrier directly from the UHVCTM, through the Port L onto the FIB-SEM stage. By adding a DN40KF transfer arm, this configuration can also be used as a simple load-lock to quickly introduce samples without venting the entire instrument.

We currently provide 3 different docking solutions for the Thermo Fisher Helios system: A Direct Docking (DD), Fast Loader (FL) and Quick Loader (QL) solution. For direct comparison, please consult our Product Catalogue (pdf). The Direct Docking is the best option if the end user wants to mainly transfer samples from the UVHCTM and only occasionally wants to load samples directly into the FIB-SEM.

Main features:

  • Cost effective and simple
  • Direct loading of samples by means of additional transfer arm
  • Docking of UHVCTM
  • Linear support sledge for UHVCTM
  • Valve controller and interface
  • Free inner diameter of transfer flanges: 38mm
