Cryo Preparation System for SEM and FIB/SEM

PP3010T from Quorum Technologies is an automated cryo preparation system for scanning electron microscopy (SEM), FE-SEM and FIB/SEM.

Cryo-SEM is the ideal preparation method for a wide range of "wet" or beam-sensitive specimens, including biological systems, foods, polymers, pharmaceuticals, oils, foams and many other materials.

At the operational heart of the PP3010T is the gas cooled aQuilo cryo preparation chamber, which includes tools for specimen fracturing and manipulation as well as fully automatic sublimation and sputter coating. more

VisiSens for the visualizing of oxygen distribution in liquids, cell cultures and living samples

PreSens now offers VisiSens, a new and unique approach for visualizing oxygen distribution in liquids, cell cultures and living samples by just connecting the system to the USB plug of your laptop or PC.

The VisiSens system is a USB handheld microscope for instant visualization of e.g. metabolic activities or diffusion processes. You can transport the whole system in a small case and set it up anytime where you need it – be it laboratory or field research! It is very easy to use and a very affordable alternative to fluorescence imaging for many applications. more
