What is the value in resistivity of the the sample that is shipped with the 8009 test fixture?

The part # 8009-317B is not a measuring sample, but a part inserted between electrodes to protect them during shipping. The 8009-317B's purpose is to secure the unit during shipment or transport. The material is not controlled and information on the resistivity value is not available from Keithley.

If you want to use a material to test the 8009, try using a blank sheet of printer copy paper. Cut it down to fit with-in the 8009 electrode spacing limits ( 21/2 to 4 inches). Test the resistance of paper as baseline for your set-up. Copy paper should have insulating range of 10(8) to 10(11) Ohm-cm for Volume. A table of various insulating materials and their specifications is located in the Keithley Low Level Handbook.

Refer to Low Level Handbook 6th edition page 2-12 Figure 2-10
