Q150V Plus

Versatile carbon and/or sputter coater for high-resolution SEM applications and TEM

A highly versatile and easy-to-use coater with sputtering and/or carbon evaporation capabilities. The newly updated software can store more than 1000 recipes and supports multiple-user profiles, where recipes are sorted according to recent use. This high-vacuum model is ideal for high-resolution applications such as FE-SEM and TEM. The different coating inserts can be changed within seconds, and several drop-in style specimen stages are available.
