The GV10x Downstream Asher reduces hydrocarbon contamination 10X to 20X more effectively and 10X faster than traditional methods. From in-situ electron beam instrument cleaning to hydrogen cleaning to ex-situ sample cleaning and storage, ibss Group offers GV10x options that meet your contamination needs.View all Products
The GV10x Downstream Asher’s ability to remove carbon contamination is a quantum leap beyond the traditional methods of mitigating contamination using cold trapping, nitrogen purging, and other plasma cleaners. The GV10x, with its extended power and pressure range (5 to 100 Watts and 2 to <0.005 Torr), represents a paradigm shift in the carbon decontamination of SEMs and other vacuum systems.Learn More About Applications

"Cleaning rates were so high that depositions were removed faster than expected...it becomes obvious that the carbon cleaning in the case of the GV10x...is much more efficient."
-Cells Alba Synchrotron Light Facility
"My [colleague] was so excited about your GV10x DS Asher that he insisted I had to buy one for my lab."
-Operator, Northwestern University
"...the [GV10x] downstream plasma ashing system shows an obvious improvement compared to the traditional one."
-Lianfeng Fu, et al., Western Digital Corporation
“I wanted to tell you that the GV10x you sent was properly installed, it took me like absolutely no effort to make it work. I tested it with a couple of samples, and the effect was really noticeable.”
