SEM – Zeiss 1450EP


The Zeiss 1450EP is GEM’s variable pressure scanning electron microscope (SEM), with a sample chamber that allows imaging from high vacuum mode to 2,600 Pa. The variable pressure mode makes it ideal for heavily hydrated samples (e.g., biological, food, and textiles samples). Furthermore, it is equipped with a 20 mm Oxford energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) system for conducting elemental analysis.
