World’s first mobile SEM

Meet world’s first Mobile SEM - the Phenom desktop SEM. A fully integrated and accredited scanning electron microscope (SEM) with EDX to be used on every location for fast and accurate investigations and analysis.

The Phenom ProX is the ultimate all-in-one imaging and X-ray analysis system (EDX). With the Phenom ProX desktop SEM, sample structures can be physically examined and their elemental composition determined.

Besides point analysis, the optional Elemental Mapping and Line Scan software allows further analysis of the distribution of elements.

Now, the robust, desktop design of the Phenom has opened up new opportunities. By positioning the Phenom inside a car or bus, the SEM is turned into a truly mobile lab. This is the Phenom approach of SEM: as agile, flexible units that can be operated by anyone, anywhere.

The mobile Phenom allows SEM- and EDX-use anywhere, whether it is for asbestos analysis at a reconstruction site, investigating evidence at a crime site, or moving SEM capacity between different sites of a mining plant. No infrastructure is required, even remote areas can be targeted. The mobile Phenom is in full operation within 45 minutes after arriving at the site, and can be moved to a next location less than 45 minutes after the last measurement.

Key features

  • Transparent and timesaving analysis on location
  • 100,000x magnification
  • Fully integrated X-ray analysis
  • Fastest Time to SEM Image

By giving SEM-imaging a mobile platform, Phenom-World allows their users to optimize operation time. The system can be moved between project locations with maximum uptime, creating efficiency for the user, and minimizing waiting time for their customers.

Main advantages

  • Biologist bring their SEM to their research location on site
  • Short SEM educational projects at schools with a Phenom travelling around the district
  • Private companies have the Phenom travel up and down between different factories to solve any quality control issues on the spot
  • Suppliers can send their Phenom to their customers in case of a quality claim discussion, and retrace the problem to its origin

The Phenom Mobile SEM has been developed together with RPS Netherlands and is accredited by Dutch Council of Accreditation (RvA).
