SIGMA VP

With its variable pressure modes of operation the SIGMA VP series of Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopes allows imaging of non-conducting samples.

SIGMA VP offers many advantages for life science applications. The high purity, in-lens, SE detection allows true surface imaging for crisp images of bacteria, cells, plants and organisms. In combination with ATLAS software, high resolution, extreme field of view imaging is possible. Here mosaic images can be generated which consist of multiple images of which each one can have up to 32k by 32k pixels.

By combining your SIGMA VP with 3View technology from Gatan Inc. high resolution 3D data from resin embedded cell and tissue samples can be acquired in the shortest possible time.

SIGMA VP brings you in addition analytical performance, integrated workflows and increased productivity.

For the imaging of non-conducting samples, variable pressure modes of operation are available with SIGMA VP.

  • SIGMA VP is equipped with variable pressure (VP) technology for exceptional imaging and analysis of non-conductive specimens. It is compatible with a wealth of accessories including the class leading BSD and VPSE G3 detectors for superior materials contrast and SE imaging in VP.
  • With SIGMA VP, it is possible to examine large sections from brain, kidney, nanopathology and forensic samples or other tissues. SIGMA VP, in combination with 3View ultramicrotome, allows for high resolution, 3D imaging of tissues and even whole organisms, such as Drosophila, zebrafish or plants.
  • SIGMA VP offers many advantages for life science applications. The high purity, in-lens, SE detection allows true surface imaging for crisp images of bacteria, cells, plants and organisms. In combination with ATLAS software, high resolution, extreme field of view imaging is possible with image sizes of up to 32k by 32k pixels.
  • SIGMA VP can handle specimen of up to 250mm diameter and 145mm tall. Furthermore, the coplanar chamber design provides the ideal geometry for simultaneous EDS and electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD). Materials analysis at high resolution is provided by the class leading X-ray geometry for both energy (EDS) and wavelength dispersive spectroscopy (WDS).

3View Turns Your ZEISS FE-SEM into a Fast High-Resolution 3D Imaging System

Combine your SIGMA VP with 3View technology from Gatan Inc. to acquire high resolution 3D data from resin embedded cell and tissue samples. In the shortest possible time. 

3View is an ultramicrotome inside the SEM chamber. The sample is continuously cut and imaged. You produce thousands of serial images in a single day – each perfectly aligned because they are all generated from one fixed block.

Your complete solution from Carl Zeiss

Use SIGMA VP 3View with variable pressure for optimal charge neutralization. Your system runs with unbeatable long term stability without any user intervention.

Large field of view

ZEISS GEMINI technology delivers up to 32k x 24k pixels in one scan at nm resolution. You image even large fields of view without blurring at the edges. And you won’t need to stitch images for most applications.

Highest speed

Depending on your application you get your 3D results up to 10 times faster with 3View. Speed up your application with SIGMA VP’s unique high current mode.
