Apreo 2 SEM

Advanced materials characterization labs require access to the latest techniques and will push analytical tools, including SEMs, to the extremes of their capabilities. Most of these labs are multi-user facilities that accommodate users with varying degrees of experience. Time on the microscope is precious, and excessive time spent on maintenance, alignments, training, or image optimization needs to be avoided.

Key Benefits

  • The combination of advanced optics, detection, and automation in Apreo 2 makes obtaining high-resolution imaging possible even for users new to SEM.
  • High-quality, high-resolution imaging is possible regardless of the target samples’ properties. 
  • Insulators beam sensitive or magnetic materials can all be imaged with ease thanks to Apreo 2’s unique optics, detection, and beam control options.
  • Essential information at your fingertips with ChemiSEM that provides live quantitative elemental mapping for unprecedented time to result and ease of use.
  • Easy access to the stage, a convenient multi-sample holder, and a fast pump down ensures no time is wasted loading samples.
  • An automated routine to insert and remove a pressure-limiting aperture (PLA) allows for a seamless switch between high and low vacuum without opening the chamber.
  • From optics, to image acquisition, Apreo 2 provides a range of automated features to make imaging time as effective and efficient as possible.
  • Apreo 2 is the only SEM that offers high-resolution performance (1nm) and excellent image quality at an analytical working distance (10mm).

Our new Thermo Scientific Apreo 2 SEM expands access to high-performance imaging and analytics to all levels of microscopy expertise. With Thermo Scientific ChemiSEM Technology, a unique live elemental imaging capability, compositional information is always available, through the most intuitive interface. Eliminating all the hassle associated with typical EDS implementations, ChemiSEM Technology offers unprecedented time to result and ease of use.

The Apreo 2 SEM poses much smaller demands on users and lab managers with Thermo Scientific SmartAlign Technology, an optics system that aligns itself. Furthermore, the Apreo 2 SEM automates the image fine-tuning process with Thermo Scientific FLASH technology. FLASH Technology executes any necessary corrections to lens centering, the stigmators, and the final focus of the image. The combination of these technologies means that users new to electron microscopy can access the high-end performance of the Apreo 2 SEM. Additionally, the Apreo 2 SEM is the only SEM with a 1-nanometer resolution at a 10 mm analytical working distance. No longer does long working distance mean poor imaging. With the Apreo 2 SEM, anyone will be able to confidently get great results.
