Exactly What You Need

Every contrast method available to meet your growing needs!

  • LED illumination lights your sample homogenously and with a constant color temperature, while also saving energy and avoiding bulb changes due to the LED’s lifetime of up to 25,000 hours.
  • Brightfield / Darkfield EPI objectives for reflected light illumination
  • Oblique contrast is built-in to the reflected light axis to show more surface topography and 3D visual affect
  • Polarization with compensaters for full wave and quarter wave circular polarized light
  • Nomarski, DIC (Differential Interference Contrast) to bring out surface features and topography

Technical Cleanliness

Fast and easy particle counting on filter patches

Focus on the result you would like to achieve rather than the process of getting to it. Intelligent Automation does the work for you: It solves multi-step routines with the press of a button, makes your work life easier, saves time, and allows you to focus on your work, not on complex microscope settings.

  • Improve your workflow with multi-sample measurements
  • Meet international and national standards as well as individual requirements
  • Acquire reliable and reproducible results
  • Determine the full damage potential of the particle by measuring height, not just the length and width
  • Generate reports quickly in compliance with external or internal standards
  • Gain more information with laser spectroscopy to identify the source of contamination

Easy and intuitive software design for any user

Cleanliness Expert software has been designed with the user in mind. The user interface is configurable to specific needs to allow easy navigation by operators of different levels of proficiency. The software guides the users intuitively to quickly start the analysis. For reliable, reproducible results, all system settings are stored in a configuration file and can be automatically recalled.

  • Fast and easy differentiation between reflective (metallic) and non-reflective particles
  • Autofocus and autodetection functionalities
  • Interactive filter map showing position of live image during result review
  • Accurate automated analysis due to software calibration by coded microscopes
  • Generate reports easily to share your results
Meet and exceed national and international standards for technical cleanliness

LIBS - Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy

Identify the source of contamination

Combine visual and chemical inspection in a single workflow solution to help you find the source of contamination. Cleanliness Expert software combined with Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) system provides you with a flexible 2-in-1 analysis solution. Knowing more about the contamination quickly and easily gives your business an advantage when making decisions.

More flexibility with LIBS

  • Get the chemical fingerprint of the particle without transferring it to an electron microscope (SEM) or other device
  • Eliminate additional sample preparation and system adjustment
  • Keep the chemical analysis in-house to save time and money
  • Make informed decisions based on optical and chemical information
