The QuickLoader is designed to load regular, 12.5 mm to 32 mm size sample stubs into the specimen chamber via a chamber port without breaking the working vacuum. This alone helps provide a cleaner environment for electron optical work to proceed. With an exchange time of less than one minute from sample to sample loading and unloading is invariably faster than system door entry, providing more time for observation and analysis.
The vacuum operation is totally integrated into the vacuum of the SDB or SEM it is loading and therefore utilizes all necessary internal safety interlocks. Operation is via indicating buttons for only Pump and Vent on the QuickLoader console, thus simplifying the loading and unloading cycles. Stage location is automatically set when either Pump or Vent buttons are pressed allowing immediate loading/unloading at the computed position to take place.
The QuickLoader can be upgraded at any time to cryogenic operation. With the addition of a Cryo-MAT kit the QuickLoader transforms to a cryo stage version for cooling non-hydrated samples. This proves to be very useful for FIB work or even just observing Polymers, composites and other beam or vacuum sensitive samples. The addition of Cryo-MAT does not compromise the operation of the QuickLoader as a room temperature loader and can be switched quickly between the two.
