Description

Sample preparation instruments are available for all kinds of samples for scanning electron microscopes: Gold-Palladium Sputter Coater - Leica; Carbon Coater - Leica; Cryo Sample Preparation - Leica; Gatan Model 656 Dimple Grinder - a precision tool used to mechanically produce dimples in the surface of materials like ceramics, semiconductors and metals; Gatan Model Duo Mill 600 - a post-ion milling device used to prepare electron transparent specimens for transmission electron microscopy; Vitrobot Mark IV System - an advanced specimen preparation device, which automates the vitrification process, to provide fast, easy and reproducible preparation of biological, food, industrial, pharmaceutical or other materials prone to electron beam damage.
