Quorum technologies has been the market and technology leader in electron microscopy coating and cryogenic preparation since 2001. The market-leading Q Series of vacuum coating systems and PP3010T cryo preparation systems for SEM and FIB/SEM – both true ground-up redesigns that have truly set the standard within the specimen preparation field.

Quorum offer two EM freeze dryers, specifically designed for the careful drying of a range of electron microscopy samples.
The K750X Freeze Dryer uses peltier cooling and operates under rotary-pumped vacuum. For more demanding applications, the K775X Freeze Dryer is cooled by liquid nitrogen and uses turbomolecular pumping.
Freeze drying specimen preparation for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is a well-established practice. It reduces the distortion and shrinkage effects that occur when a wet specimen dries by normal evaporation, as the freeze drying method involves careful sublimation under vacuum.
