Phenom Pro Desktop SEM

Desktop SEM for robust and effortless SEM analysis, expanding your research capability

Phenom Pro Desktop SEM

The sixth-generation of Thermo Scientific Phenom Pro G6 Desktop SEM fills the gap between light microscopy and floor-model SEM analysis, thus expanding the capabilities of research facilities.

Fast and easy to use, the Phenom Pro G6 Desktop SEM can be used to relieve the burden of routine analysis for common samples from floor-model SEM instruments. Instrument configuration and the sample loading mechanism ensure quick imaging with minimal time spent tuning between experiments.

Facility users of any experience level can quickly begin producing high-quality results with the Phenom Pro G6 Desktop SEM. Its long-lifetime CeB6 source offers high brightness while requiring low maintenance. Additionally, its high stability and small form factor allow the instrument to be used in practically any lab environment; more simply put, it does not require specialized infrastructure or expert oversight.

Key Features


The color navigation camera in the Phenom Pro Desktop SEM provides information that helps you make the link between optical and electron optical images. Users are ready to take images after only 10 minutes of basic training. A large variety of sample holders is available to accommodate a range of applications. Sample loading is fast and easy thanks to our patented sample vacuum loading technology.

Phenom ProSuite Software

Thermo Scientific Phenom ProSuite Software is an optional software application platform that has been developed to further enhance the capabilities of the Phenom desktop SEM. Phenom ProSuite Software enables maximum information to be extracted from images obtained on the Phenom Pro Desktop SEM. 

Secondary electron detector

A secondary electron detector (SED) is optionally available on the Phenom Pro Desktop SEM. The SED collects low-energy electrons from the top surface layer of the sample. It is therefore the perfect choice to reveal detailed sample surface information.
