Specimen Preparation Solution Promotes Higher Throughput
EXpressLO LLC has released the Aspirato lift out module for the EXpressLO ex situ lift out station. The Aspirato module enables faster processing of FIB specimens by improving lift out speed and specimen placement, allowing users to maximize the advantages of the EXpressLO grids and lift out method.
“Researchers are always challenged to find ways to achieve higher throughput. Aspirato improves speed, specimen manipulation accuracy, and positioning reliability for lift out to our patented EXpressLO grids, which are uniquely designed to allow specimens to return to the FIB for further processing,” says Lucille Giannuzzi, president of EXpressLO. “More control over specimen positioning to our grids enables users to quickly place the area of interest in the optimal position for either FIB post processing or for S/TEM imaging. In addition, because Aspirato is a module, it can be implemented on all of our units, eliminating concerns...
