By overlaying the EDS elemental data on the corresponding SEM image, our new EDS detectors can rapidly produce vivid color elemental maps. The colors on the map represent the elemental make-up of the imaged area. This allows one to quickly and easily interpret the components present in the sample. Save a thousand words and use one of these pictures in your next project.
The EDS detector identifies the elements within a sample while it is being examined with a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). This ability allows an analyst to determine the elemental make-up of minute particles in a matter of seconds. EDS has an almost unlimited number of applications and makes the SEM the most powerful and versatile analytical tool around today. When you need to know what’s in your sample, give us a call.
Our membrane autopsy service uses a combination of microscopy techniques to examine filtration membranes and identify the elemental and chemical composition of any foulant materials present. This analysis also categorizes the degree of fouling and notes any other causes for poor performance, such as physical damage to the membrane surface. MicroVision Labs has extensive experience examining a wide variety of RO, UF and MF membranes, including hollow fibers, cartridge, spiral wound, and tubular membranes.
FTIR is used to identify organic compounds (polymers, biological materials, oils, waxes, etc.) and provides structural information about the manner in which they are assembled. Our Micro-FTIR combines a light microscope with an automated stage which allows us to obtain spectra from very small samples (~10um) as well as producing 3D organic compositional maps. Let us help with all your IR needs.
