New accessory for TEM lamella ex-situ lift out


Our micromanipulator can transfer FIB foils to TEM grids outside (ex situ) the SEM chamber.

For this application, we already have a manual method for FIB-Foil Transfer, using the Superfine Pitch Rotator ( which can be rotated in the axis of the probe.



Our new automated lift-out solution is a motorized version which makes it possible to perform this foil rotation with control through the Micro Support Axis Pro software.

In this application, the software is able to memorize 2 arm positions.


The foil is picked up with our Vacuum Absorption Tool Set ( to reduce the risk of losing the foil during transport.


If you are interested in this accessory, please feel free to contact us.
