Amray 1810 Scanning Electron Microscope

The Amray 1810 is a tungsten filament SEM, retrofitted with SEMTech Solutions' computer control and software interface. The SEM is capable of magnification from 20X to 50,000X, resolving features down to 5 nm. User selectable acceleration potentials of 100 V to 30 kV, spot sizes and externally selectable final lens apertures offer good versatility for different sample types. The stage can support samples up to 100 mm in diameter, with +/- 50 mm movement in the x, y and z directions, 90° of tilt, and 360° of continuous rotation.

SEMTech Solutions' software offers near-complete control of the instrument. In addition to myriad image manipulation features and image capture, acceleration potential, spot size, magnification, brightness, contrast, stigmator, focus, scan rates, and image averaging are all controllable via the software interface.

"Counting molecules, dodging blood cells: real-time molecular measurements directly in the living body"
The development of technology capable of continuously tracking the levels of drugs, metabolites, and biomarkers in situ in the body would revolutionize our understanding of health and our ability to detect and treat disease. It would, for example, provide clinicians with a real-time window into organ function and would enable therapies guided by patient-specific, real-time pharmacokinetics, opening a new dimension in personalized medicine. In response my group has pioneered the development of a “biology-inspired” electrochemical approach to monitoring specific molecules that supports real-time measurements of arbitrary molecular targets (irrespective of their chemical reactivity) directly in awake, fully ambulatory subjects.
