Building on our pioneering developments of recent years at SPECS, Enviro Analytical Instruments proudly presents EnviroESCA. This novel and smart analysis tool overcomes the barriers of standard XPS systems by enabling analyses at pressures far above UHV. EnviroESCA is designed for high-throughput analysis and opens up new applications in the fields of medical technology, biotechnology and the life sciences. It offers the shortest loading-to-measurement time on samples of all types including liquids, tissue, plastics and foils, powders, soil, zeolites, rocks, minerals and ceramics. The system is can be loaded with multiple samples, or a single sample up to Ø 60 mm and 40 mm in height
SPECS is the market leader in near-ambient pressure photoelectron spectroscopy which seeks to bridge the pressure gap between traditional UHV and more realistic conditions closer to atmospheric pressure.
The unique sample environment in EnviroESCA makes it ideally suited for characterization of materials that may not be UHV compatible: The stringent UHV requirement of conventional XPS is dispensed with in EnviroESCA. Dedicated sample environment modules are provided as smart units for different classes of samples and applications. The modules are equipped with all relevant components such as sample stage, plasma cleaning and gas handling. Their exchange can be readily accomplished in just a few minutes. Variable or high temperature Sample Environments are available on request.
Optimise your results with dedicated accessories:
All samples are introduced to the sample environment modules via SmartDock. It consists of a sliding door mechanism for manual sample loading with a connection system for easy docking of sample containers. The sample containers allow transportation of samples prepared ex situ under vacuum or gas atmospheres.While docked, sample containers are supplied with power, gases and pressurized air for valves or actuators. The containers are fully integrated into the EnviroESCA device network for remote control or automation. The SmartDock can also be exchanged with a glove box docking system
Measurement time can be saved by planning experiments in advance with the stand-alone SampleExplorer. An unlimited number of measurement positions and tasks can be defined for batch processing before inserting the sample into EnviroESCA. A high precision sample stage is embedded in a geometrical mockup of the analysis setting. Equipped with three high resolution cameras it enables documentation of the analysis area. For each measurement position a “through the lens” view with an optical resolution well below 10μm and a wide angle view of the analysis position are recorded in conjunction with a survey view of the platter.
The AutoLoader uses a collaborative industrial robot in combination with a sample storage unit enabling high throughput sample analysis. Multiple sample storage units can be used and each of them can be replaced on the fly without interfering with the robot’s movements.
