PerkinElmer UV-Visible Spectrometer

PerkinElmer UV-Visible Spectrometer

The Lambda is a double-beam UV-Visible spectrometer that measures light absorption from the visible to the ultraviolet region (1100 nm to 200 nm, 1.1 eV to 6.2 eV). A sample is usually made up to a known concentration in a non-absorbing solvent (such as water) and loaded into a quartz cuvette (available from the lab). Liquids, solutions and transparent solids can be measured. Note that we are not able to measure reflectance on this instrument.

SEM - FEI Nova NanoSEM 230 FE-SEM

SEM - FEI Nova NanoSEM 230 FE-SEM

The NanoSEM 230 is a field-emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM), which attains ultra-high imaging resolution without the specimen size restrictions of a conventional in-lens FE-SEM due to the advanced design of the electron optics. The NanoSEM 450’s Schottky field-emission source allows the user to achieve high imaging resolution at a range of kV, at both low (high-resolution imaging) and high (microanalytical imaging) currents.

SEM - Hitachi S3400

SEM - Hitachi S3400

EMU has two Hitachi S3400 SEMs – both are able to do imaging and X-ray microanalysis. These instruments are fitted with secondary and backscatter electron detectors that allow for topographic and compositional (atomic number contrast) surface imaging of samples. These microscopes are routinely used for imaging from ~20x to ~20,000x magnification. The S3400 SEMs are predominantly used in high-vacuum mode, but also have a variable-pressure or “natural” mode that can be useful when imaging vacuum-sensitive specimens or specimens with conductivity problems.

Shandon Exceisior ES Tissue Processor

Shandon Exceisior ES Tissue Processor

Shandon Excelsior ES Tissue Processor is used for automated fixation, dehydration, clearing and wax infiltration of specimens prior to paraffin embedding and sectioning. Subsequent processing like staining and immunostaining can then be performed on processed specimen for pathology diagnosis or research. You can process up to 222 samples at once, across 3 level of organised baskets. The samples are hold into specimen cassettes and each level of organised basket can contain up to 74 cassettes.

TA Instruments NanoDSC

This capillary Differential Scanning Calorimeter can be used for investigating the stability of proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and other macromolecules. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is the only method that directly measures the stability of macromolecules in solution. The information obtained provides valuable insights into the factors (e.g. hydrophobic interactions, hydrogen bonding, conformational entropy and physical environment) that stabilize these biomolecules alone or as complexes, such as protein-ligand or micellar complexes.

The high brightness and coherence of the cold FEG mean that this microscope is ideally suited for analytical microscopy of materials. The F200 has a lattice resolution of 0.16 nm in ADF STEM mode and 0.1 nm in TEM mode at 200 kV.

TEM - JEOL TEM-1400

TEM - JEOL TEM-1400

The JEOL 1400 transmission electron microscope operates at accelerating voltages up to 120kV. The microscope is equipped with a high contrast lens configuration especially suited to imaging biological, medical or polymer specimens that lack electron density and inherent contrast. Specimens undergo preparation procedures to ensure they are 100 nm or thinner in order to transmit the electron beam. Dense regions within the specimen cause electrons to scatter and an aperture, positioned near the specimen in the electron column, prevents the scattered electrons from reaching the imaging plane.

TEM - Phillips CM200

TEM - Phillips CM200

The Philips CM200 field emission transmission electron microscope allows very high resolution images to be obtained from thin (electron transparent) materials. In a field emission gun a very strong electric field is used to extract electrons from a metal filament. This results in an electron beam which is very bright. Ultimately, this microscope allows individual atoms to be imaged. The CM200 TEM allows structural, crystallographic and elemental studies of materials.
