Transport boxes (vacuum suitcases) are used for transporting samples between different UHV systems under ultra high vacuum conditions.
Sample holders/samples can be stored and transported inside the transport box while maintaining UHV conditions. Vacuum is ensured by an ion pump and it's monitored by appropriate pressure gauge. The pump is designed so that it can be powered from e.g. a car battery or other power source.
