Availability Tescan Mira LMUOlympus SZ61- NewWave MicroMill device

Microsampling system designed for high-resolution milling of rocks, minerals and fossils. The resulting powder is then collected for further chemical and/or isotopic analysis. The combination of sub-micron stage resolution, position accuracy and real-time video observation enables sampling of complex structures in skeletal and crystalline materials (e.g. annual growth banding of molluscan shells, crystal growth zonation ...).
