Stunning resolution and refined contrast on biological samples
Verios extends today's SEM capability. It delivers eXtreme High Resolution (XHR) and spectacular contrast, thanks to multiple in-column detectors and advanced optics. The Elstar™ FESEM column, with its integrated monochromator and beam deceleration, which enables Verios's unique low kV performance, also features other unique technologies such as constant power lenses for higher thermal stability and electrostatic scanning for higher deflection linearity. It provides nanometer scale, low-kV characterization of beam sensitive, biological samples while offering ease of use and versatility by simultaneous imaging of secondary electrons and backscattered electrons. Complemented by two new in-column detectors and signal filtering capabilities it stands for stunning resolution and refined contrast. Furthermore, an optional scanning transmission electron mode (STEM) detector provides superior performance on thin biological S/TEM samples.
