Inductively coupled plasma (ICP) Mass Spectrometer that is capable of detecting almost every element on the periodic table down to sub-parts per billion (ppb) level. Useful for analyzing water samples, rock samples.
Inductively coupled plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer (OES), which is capable of detecting elements to the high parts per billion (ppb) level.
Scanning electron microscope that can operate in high or low vacuum mode. Low vacuum mode allows for it to be used as an Environmental SEM, which means more biological type samples can be imaged.
Also has a CL detector and an XRD detector.
The XRD detector can use the X-rays produced to give a readout of the different elements that are present in a sample.
Equipped with 5 different laser lights for visualizing different wavelengths.
Samples can be stained with antibodies that are conjugated to chromophores that are then excited by the particular wavelength of laser light. This allows for different parts of a biological sample to be stained with different colors, Nucleus=Blue, DNA=Green, a particular protein=Red.
Vacuum chamber combined with either RF or DC plasma to coat substrates using different metallic targets such as gold or silver.
