This easy to use SEM allows the operator to image either secondary electrons (SE mode) or backscattered electrons (VP mode) allowing the imaging of uncoated biological samples. The S-2600N is equipped with an X-ray detector coupled to Quartz Imaging Systems XOne software for acquisition and processing for full spectrum Energy Dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX).
Operating in the 1 – 270 Pa pressure range, the S-2600N delivers 5.0 nm resolution in VP mode. A four-quadrant backscatter detector is used to generate compositional and/or topographical images.
Digital images (8 bit) and EDX spectra are securely stored on the BioImaging Facility server and retrieved via the Internet using Quartz PCI.
