Phenom Pure
Thermo Scientific

The Thermo Scientific Phenom Pure is an economical, entry-level desktop SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) with easy-to-use features. It’s ideal for the transition from light optical to electron microscopy. Offering excellent value, it delivers best-in-class imaging results from a user-friendly system.

  • Long-lasting, high-brightness CeB6 source for high quality images.
  • Fastest loading and imaging times.
  • Reliable automated focus and source alignments.


Fast and easy to use

Fastest loading and imaging time on the market.


Affordable, entry-level desktop SEM

Acquire high quality images

Basic features, with auto-focus and automated alignment.

>30 times the magnification

Of a conventional light microscope

CeB6 source

Long-lasting and high-brightness


Easy to Use

After only 10 minutes of basic training, you’re ready to start acquiring images. Automated features and a large depth of focus make for user-friendly, stress-free imaging.

Sample loading is fast and safe, with Thermo Scientific’s patented sample vacuum-loading technology. A large variety of holders are available for various types of samples.

Never Lost Navigation

With “Never Lost Navigation”, you always know your position on the sample. Overviews of both the optical and electron-optical images provide clear reference point at all times, so you can easily visualise the link between them.

By simply clicking on the optical image you can move to the region of interest with the automated, motorised stage. With just one button, you can switch to electron imaging mode. Within 30 seconds of loading a sample, a high-resolution image is available.


Two optional detector systems are available for the Phenom Pure G6 desktop SEM:

  • Fully integrated EDS (Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy) system for analysing chemical composition. Acquire detailed chemical composition data from a micro volume or spot analysis.
  • Secondary Electron Detector (SED) for surface and topography sensitive imaging.

How to Choose a SEM

A recorded webinar from Thermo Scientific about how to match the features and specification of a SEM to the requirements of your application.

  • How different samples and applications require different resolution performance.
  • What performance you can expect from a tungsten / FEG / in-lens FEG / UC FEG.
  • Dealing with different types of samples: insulators, nanomaterials, sensitive materials, etc.
  • Characterising samples in their natural state without the need for sample preparation.
  • What type of information the SEM can provide.
  • Software features to boost productivity and ease-of-use.
