The unique design of gilent’s sample plates delivers superior sample stability and ease of use. Magnetic suspension provides easy loading and eliminates mechanical drift. The stand-alone plates permit simple sample mounting and application- speciic plate customization. modular design allows the plates to be used with an unparalleled number of options, such as open liquid cells, low-through cells, salt-bridge cells (electrochemistry), Petri dishes (live-cell imaging), and glass microscope slides.
gilent’s electrochemical SPM option includes a complete kit for high-resolution in situ EC-SPM experiments. Electrochemical SPM offers a low-noise potentiostat/ galvanostat for in situ EC-STM and EC-FM. When combined with temperature control, it is possible to obtain valuable information about electrochemical processes that would otherwise be inaccessible. The addition of environmental control allows imaging with no dissolved oxygen in either aqueous or non-aqueous solutions.
