Aquilos Cryo-FIB Datasheet
The Thermo Scientific™ Aquilos™ Cryo-FIB is a cryo-dedicated DualBeam™ system that delivers optimal sample preparation for high-end cryo-TEM tomography. The Aquilos completes our cryo-electron tomography workflow, allowing researchers to reliably create
samples with precisely controlled thickness with minimal investment in time and effort.
Produce cryo-lamellas for cryo-tomography using autoloader TEM systems. Cryo-dedicated hardware inside the chamber ensures minimal sample contamination, sample damage and loss of correlation accuracy, as the sample will not be unloaded from the main stage.
Create thinner cryo-lamella without cutting artifacts. Ion beam milling enables the creation of compression-free cryo-amella samples for TEM tomography imaging. The method voids artifacts such as mechanical compression inevitable for mechanical cryo-sectioning,
using a cryo-ultramicrotome.
Improve sample preparation precision. Using the guided user software and Maps correlation software makes the quilos Cryo-FIB easy to use, even for inexperienced users.
