Phenom ProX Desktop SEM

Desktop SEM with EDS capability for robust, effortless, and versatile elemental and SEM analysis

Phenom Desktop SEM with energy-dispersive X-ray diffraction

The sixth-generation of Thermo Scientific Phenom ProX G6 Desktop SEM fills the gap between light microscopy and floor-model SEM analysis, thus expanding the capabilities of research facilities. It offers fast, high-resolution imaging in addition to an integrated energy-dispersive X-ray diffraction (EDS) detector for robust, easy-to-use, rapid elemental analysis.

Key Features

Fast and easy to use

The Phenom Pro 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.

Long-lifetime CeB6 source

Facility users of any experience level can quickly begin producing high-quality results with the Phenom Pro Desktop SEM. Its long-lifetime CeB6 source offers high brightness while requiring low maintenance.

Robust and small form factor

It’s 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.
