Custom Built Solutions

Here at Microscopy Solutions we are not just about providing you with consumables or existing products for your SEM, TEM, FIB or LM equipment; we can also work with you to create an entirely new, bespoke addition to help add value to what you already have.

Custom Built Cryo Manipulation

Our Chief Technical Officer, Alex Rosenthal, and his team have worked with a number of institutions to create solutions to improve the quality and efficiency of their exisiting microscopy system.

A great example of this is the Glovebox created for Dr. Sebastian Tacke and his team at MPI in Dortmund, Germany, allowing them to developed an integrated workflow for automated cryo focused ion beam milling.

"The glove box was designed to enable convenient sample handling in an anhydrous environment. To reduce the humidity to a minimum, the glove box is purged during operation with nitrogen and a cold trap is installed in the back of the LN2 reservoir. LN2 can be taken from this reservoir for applications inside the glove box. For convenient handling, heated tool holders are installed. A load lock enables the insertion of tools without breaking the humidity barrier"

If your project is moving a little slower than you'd planned, perhaps we can help. And if we can't create the solution for you, we are familiar with the EM Tender process and can work with you to connect you with a team that can.
