The Liquid Supply System

Gain precise fluidic control of your in situ liquid experiments

The DENSsolutions Liquid Supply System (LSS) is an integrated solution designed to offer you ease-of-use, flexibility and reproducibility in your in situ liquid experiments. With the LSS, you can fully control the microfluidic environment inside the Nano-Cell while biasing or heating your sample.

1. Ease of use

The integration of various individual parts into the Liquid Supply System greatly simplifies the operation of the system as you no longer need to work with the individual components separately. Moreover, the flexible design of the LSS, particularly the moveable base, enables you to easily relocate, store and set it up in various locations.

2. High resolution imaging and meaningful analytical analysis

The LSS introduces the capability of controllable and inert gas purging. The purging is done via a separate gas line, allowing you to flawlessly switch between the liquid and inert gas to characterize the sample in between, for example, electrochemical cycling. The switching can be achieved without the air exposure, which is especially beneficial for air-sensitive samples, like Li-ion batteries. Via air/inert gas purging, you can easily get rid of excess liquid in the sample, thereby allowing you to achieve high resolution imaging and to perform meaningful electron diffraction, EELS and EDX studies.

3. Reliable and reproducible results

The components of the LSS, such as the inlet and outlet pressure-based pumps as well as the liquid flow meter, introduce an unprecedented level of control during your liquid phase microscopy experiments. The LSS offers the unique ability to actively measure the liquid flow, making it possible for you to compare results from different experiments. Moreover, this means that you can easily detect potential clogs in the system and act fast, allowing you to spend your TEM time efficiently and effectively.

Ultimately, the combination of our LSS and unique Nano-Cell design, having an on-chip inlet and outlet, enables the liquid delivery to be both reliable and reproducible with a success rate of more than 95%.

Testimonials

“We are quite impressed with the DENSsolutions Stream Liquid Supply System (LSS). The setup of the LSS is very simple and easy to use. Moreover, the nature of an integrated system on a cart makes it easy and safe to transport between labs. This is very helpful and useful for a core facility like ours.”
