In Situ TEM Solutions
Stream | Liquid + biasing or heating
Stream is the number one solution for in situ liquid phase electron microscopy (LPEM). The plug-and-play system provides researchers with the capability to conduct high resolution TEM imaging and spectroscopy of nanomaterials, soft materials, or biological samples in dynamic liquid environments. With the possibility to apply heating or biasing stimuli within the liquid environment, and even wider range of exciting phenomena can be investigated.
High Experimental Success Rate
Microfluidic channel ensures sample-liquid interaction, flushes away bubbles, and maintains fresh liquid supply
Liquid Supply System enables rapid liquid transport to the viewing area on the order of tens of seconds
Clean and Repeatable Experiments
Modular design featuring removable tip makes cleaning easy, avoids cross-contamination, and clogging

Stream’s patented Nano-Cell innovates over the previous generation of in situ liquid holders that rely on diffusion-controlled “bathtub” designs. A combination of a dual-chip MEMS assembly with a spacer creates a microfluidic channel with an electron-transparent window encapsulating the viewing area. This is the only system giving the microscopist full control over the liquid-sample interaction.
Mass transport control
Liquid Purging & Thickness Control
Perform high resolution imaging, meaningful elemental analysis, and electron diffraction by minimizing the liquid thickness or by purging.
Dissolve Unwanted Bubbles
Bubbles can be flushed away from the imaging area or dissolved, enabling greater control over experimental conditions.

Additional Modular Details
Liquid Supply System (LSS)
The LSS contains everything needed to control in situ experiments with unmatched flexibility. Designed for ease-of-use, repeatability, and maximum versatility, the LSS greatly simplifies complex in situ TEM experiments to maximize valuable time at the microscope.
- Ease of use
A flexible arm and mobile base can situate comfortably within TEM workstations.
- Inert gas purging
Remove excess liquid allowing high-resolution images, diffraction patterns, and meaningful EELS/EDS spectra to be acquired.
- Reliable and reproducible results
Actively measure liquid flow, enabling results to be compared across experiments.
Modular Sample Holder
The sample holder is the platform that connects the Liquid Supply System to the Nano-Cell. Machined with the highest precision fabrication techniques, the sample holder fits perfectly into the TEM’s goniometer and maintains mechanical stability and ultra-vacuum performance during use.
Alpha tilt range depends on system. Up to ± 21° (depending on polepiece) with JEOL and up to ± 35° (depending on polepiece) with Thermo Fisher Scientific.
- Modular design
A removable and modular tip makes for easy assembly, cleaning, and replacement of components.
- Replaceable tubing material
Replace tubing within minutes – ensuring a clean experiment every time.
