QX-102 Capsules — For cell biology and liquid samples
The QX-102 Capsules are used for imaging various wet materials and biological samples such as food, cosmetics, oils, paints, particles in solutions, adherent and non-adherent cells, and microorganisms. Materials of various consistencies such as foams, gels, creams and emulsions can be easily viewed using the QX-102 Capsule. The samples can be visualized either directly or by following appropriate contrast enhancement staining or labeling procedures. The capsule serves as a cell culture dish, specifically designed for the SEM. No coating or embedding of the sample are required, enabling electron microscopy imaging with easy sample preparation comparable to light microscopy
QX-202C Capsules — For in-situ imaging of dynamic hydration processes
QX-202C capsules are used for in-situ SEM imaging of various dynamic hydration processes. They can be used for imaging the hydration process of cement, gypsum and other materials. The unique design of the QX-202C capsules allows extended studies to be performed inside the SEM vacuum chamber - the dynamic process can be followed for up to 24 hours, removing the need for multiple-sample imaging or repetitive venting of the SEM. There is no need for coating, drying or freezing of the samples. Simply place the sample in the capsule, seal it and image. The samples can be visualized directly using a BSE detector.
The following images show the early stages of gypsum hydration; the growth of needle like crystals can be followed in the sequence of micrographs. Images were taken at 8, 16, 24, and 60 minutes. The formation of a network of gypsum crystals is evident within the first hour of observation.
QX-302 Capsules — For tissues and solid, hydrated samples
The QX-302 Capsules are used for imaging various solid, hydrated samples, such as tissue biopsies, plants and material specimens, in their natural wet state. The capsule is suitable for variable sample sizes, with a maximum diameter of 3mm and thickness of up to 1mm. No coating or embedding of the sample are required, enabling electron microscopy imaging with easy sample preparation comparable to light microscopy.
