Stylus Surface Profilometer

The DektakXT stylus surface profiler is an advanced thin and thick film step height measurement tool. It could enable critical nanometer level surface measurements for the microelectronics, semiconductor, solar, LED, medical, and materials science industries. The measurement is performed electromechanically by moving a diamond-tipped stylus over the sample surface according to a user-defined scan length, speed, and stylus force. The stylus is linked to a Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LDVT), which produces and processes electrical signals that correspond to surface variations of the sample.

Wafer - Silicon and glass wafer up to 6 inch. Small sample needs to be attached on full size dummy wafer. Sample heights must NOT exceed 50 mm. The surface should be free of contamination. No Hg or Ga/In contaminated samples allowed!

Microwave Brain Fixation System

Microwave fixation system is the fastest and most effective known method of halting brain chemical activity.
Microwaves are channeled and focused by the wave guide which focuses the microwaves from above the head, rather than in front. The entire head is placed in a uniform microwave field. Movements of the head do not change the field strength or microwave distribution. Thus, uniform fixation of the whole brain is achieved.

IVIS Spectrum Imaging System

The IVIS Spectrum in vivo imaging system combines 2D optical and 3D optical tomography in one platform allowing high-throughput bioluminescent and fluorescent imaging in living animals.
You can download and use the Living Image SW for a 30 day trial period. For a permanent installation, you will need to have or purchase a 20 digit SW license to activate this SW. To download the SW, use the link below. The installer must be logged into the local computer as the administrator with full permissions to install and use this SW. Make sure to choose the appropriate download file that matches the Windows OS you are targeting the installation for. Once the file is downloaded onto the desktop, Right mouse click on the file and select “Run as administrator” During the installation, do not click on any options to install as these options require additional licensing to activate. If you do not activate the SW, it will install as a 30 Day demo and will expire soon thereafter.

Follow these instructions If you want to return the license seat to the server so that you can upgrade your computer and then re-use the license seat to activate the SW. Use the Living Image menu item “Help”, Then click on “License information”. A new windows will open with the Living Image showing as a line item. “Copy down this license number”, then click on this line item to highlight it. Then click below on the box to “Return license”. Done!

Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer with QMS (TA Discovery 650)

Simultaneous Thermal Analysis generally refers to the simultaneous application of Thermogravimetry (TGA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) to one and the same sample in one instrument. The test conditions are perfectly identical for the TGA and DSC signals (same atmosphere, gas flow rate, vapor pressure on the sample, heating rate, thermal contact to the sample crucible and sensor, radiation effect, etc.). Furthermore, it improves sample throughput as more information is gathered from each test run. It also has a QMS Mass spectrometer for further identification of evolved gases.
