FEI Quanta 600 FEG

The FEI Quanta 600 FEG is an environmental SEM that can operate in high-vacuum and low-vacuum modes. It is used to image samples that are difficult to impossible to image in high vacuum SEMs; in situ experiments such as hydrating, dehydrating and heating samples are possible with the ESEM. It can operate with pressures around the sample up to 4000 Pa and in conjunction with a Peltier stage can image fully hydrated samples, a critical advantage for imaging biological samples.

The NCFL’s FEI Quanta 600 FEG is equipped with:

  • High-vacuum, low-vacuum, and extended vacuum modes
  • A heating stage to 1000° C
  • Bruker EDX with a Silicon Drifted Detector
