Carl Zeiss Supra 55 Variable Pressure Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (VP FE-SEM) Electron microscope

The Zeiss Supra 55VP FE-SEM is a high resolution state-of-the-art variable pressure field emission scanning electron microscope operating at extremely high voltages (from0.2kV) produce high magnification images (<100 000 000,00x)at both high vacuum as well as a variable low pressure options (1 Pa-133Pa) which is extremely useful for non-conductive samples such as biomedical and semi-conductor applications.

Carl Zeiss Sigma VP FE-SEM with Oxford EDS Sputtering System Electron Microscopes

The Carl-Zeiss Sigma FE-SEM is an Electron Microscope used for imaging. The SEM uses a schottky type field emitter which enables it to produce clearer images even at low kV. The resolution of the equipment is 1.3 nm at 20 kV and 2.8 nm at 1 kV. The alignment of the beam may be done electronically. The instrument is easy to use even by a beginner as it includes focusing assistance using a wobbler with variable amplitude. One is able to rotate and tilt the sample stage. The included detectors are an in-lens detector, ET-SE detector and a VP SE G3 detector as well as a STEM detector.

Carl Zeiss Libra 120 PLUS Transmission Electron Microscope

The Zeiss Libra 120 Plus is a 120 kV transmission electron microscope particularly suitable for viewing biological samples. It contains an OMEGA energy filter which allows the selection of distinct electron energies for specimen viewing and analysis as a standard in-column feature. With the OMEGA filter, the operator is able to scan and select scattered electrons with energies that provide optimal resolution/contrast of regions of interest in the specimen (a process known as "contrast tuning").

Carl Zeiss LSM510 Meta Confocal Microscopy System Confocal Microscope

The LSM 510 META gives you the unique possibility of combining the META detector with other single detectors. This enables you to configure the spectral range of the META detector as required, and at the same time maximize the signal yield via the single detector. The fact that the pinholes of each detector can also be individually adjusted and positioned offers an easy way of perfecting each and every experiment.

Carl Zeiss V12 Stereo Microscope

Stereo microscopes are equipped with two eyepieces and function much like a set of binoculars providing a wider viewing range. They are often referred to as dissecting microscopes primarily because the larger, flat viewing platform allows specimens to be manipulated, dissected and provides the space required to observe living organisms and
