TXRF Spectrometers are commonly used to analyze the elementary composition of a given sample, e.g. in medical research or environmental science.
"Bruker Nano" machines (e.g. S2 Picofox, S4 T-STAR) use round quartz or acrylic glass slices as sample carriers (diameter 30mm). Those are hard to store in an organized way, especially when the sample is already applied.
Therefore we designed respective trays, that allow sample preparation and storage in a well-organized layout. Each tray has 24 places for the respective carriers, designed for S2 Picofox with build-in sample changer.
In combination with plastic dishes, usually used in cell culture, as "housing" they are well suited to be used as a contamination-protected, stackable storage system for those sample carriers.
In case you're interested but without the capacity to do those prints, you may contact us for a respective Material Transfer Agreement (kostja.renko(#at#)charite.de).
nothing special in production, if you plan to use the trays for drying with T>45°C think about the choice of material.
PLA is cheap and easy to print, but there are more thermostable filaments out there!
Don't clean the carriers with e.g. aceton, as long as they are in the tray.
