We also offer consulting on IC structure, pedigree, design, and many other areas including technical writing and article editing. You can pay a fraction of the cost of new microscopy equipment for a one-time project or use us to evaluate what equipment you might need in the long term. You have no investment costs and no overhead as we are strictly a fee for service organization. Transmission light microscope services can be aggregated; for example, 30 minutes of DIC and 30 minutes of phase LM is one hour of LM time--they are not separately charged--which reduces your overall cost. Ask us if you have questions about your project's approach, methodology and cost estimate.

In addition, we offer a set of different LM and SEM diatom specimens to train users, evaluate microscopes and to have a standard to use for evaluating new instruments for your laboratory. These are very low cost and robust for handling. LM units are mounted on standard 1x3" microscope slides. SEM units are mounted on 12mm diameter pin stubs. Each unit is $85 PP in continental USA.

Bruker XFlash 6060 SDD EDS element x-ray detector and report generation
- i. Imaging
- ii. Quantitative analysis
- iii. Fast EDS element mapping
- iiiV. Phase analysis

EDS is included in the SEM hourly rate. Long collection time EDS maps will increase the SEM hourly time. For most specimens, the mapping time for 32 frames at 640x480 pixels increases the SEM hourly time by about fifteen minutes to complete all map frames. For mapping of more than about six elements may increase the clock time by a few minutes.

DIC (Nomarski) light microscopy imaging is accomplished on the Olympus BX-51 research grade compound microscope with UPlanAPO wet and dry objectives and a 33M pixel digital camera. DIC is a fast imaging approach to some specimens to avoid the time and cost of staining the specimens. With DIC, minimal specimen preparation is needed to get quick results for determining whether more specimen processing or selection is warranted. DIC imaging can be performed from 5X to 1KX magnification using our UPlanAPO objectives and DIC prisms.

Image processing is used for many different applications and situations. Scanned negatives, camera-captured images, X-ray films, microscopy images and other images can benefit from image processing. Most labs have Photoshop which can do what is needed for many situations. However, for those really tough images where detail is lacking or adding color to B/W grey scale images will help researchers and viewers find seemingly hidden details, our specialized image analysis algorithm programs can make a big difference.

Microphotography is a service offered when the customer is not sure of what imaging or analysis method is the most suitable one for a specimen. We do initial examination of the specimen, make initial analysis of it and may report back to the customer with options for completing the specimen's analysis. Alternatively, a method may be immediately relevant for the specimen and this method will be suggested to the customer. No further imaging will be done until the customer agrees to the suggested approach or selects an alternative method. This microphotography service is essentially a "look-see" process--evaluating the specimen and suggesting the recommended method of imaging going forward. The customer can concur with the suggestion or terminate further investigation.
