XEI Scientific Appoint Soquelec as Distributors for Canada
XEI Scientific Inc, maker of the popular EVACTRON® De-Contaminator™ Plasma Cleaning System for electron microscopes and other vacuum chambers, has appointed Soquelec Limited as their exclusive distributor for their decontamination products in Canada.
XEI Scientific has appointed a new distributor for Canada. Founded more than forty years ago, Soquelec offers a vast range of microscopy supplies and equipment for the scientific community.
Philippe Semana, Managing Director of Soquelec, is excited by the prospect of teaming up with XEI. "XEI is the technology leader with their Evactron De-Contaminator systems. The products are a natural fit to our current portfolio and we are confident we will be able to help XEI to grow in this market. Soquelec specializes in the supply of imaging and sample preparation equipment in Canada. Being able to offer Evactron cleaning, we can help our clients to clean and maintain vacuum quality in their instrumentation. And we can clean the surface of samples before imaging which greatly increases the clarity of the final image."
Speaking about this new agreement, XEI Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Daniel R Kleinen says “Soquelec provides us with an extremely experienced and well-qualified partner for the Canadian market. The Evactron De-Contaminator uses a remote RF plasma source to produce gas-phase radicals that flow downstream through the chamber, eliminating contamination by chemical etch. XEI has now sold more than 2000 Evactron systems worldwide solving contamination problems in many different environments using instrumentation such as electron microscopes, FIBs and other vacuum sample chambers.
