Tailor-made Infrastructure

Tailor-made infrastructure – reproducing customer reality for the analytical services

Your benefits with tailor-made infrastructure

Dedicated equipment is essential to guarantee the best possible experimental conditions when performing customized experiments. Tailor-made infrastructure could include, for example, devices that allow the investigation of samples in-situ and in-operando under various environmental conditions.

 

In addition to the ability to vary measurement conditions, infrastructure in the form of automated sample manipulators is important in order to provide a higher sample throughput, leading to more efficient use of available beam time, and standardization of results. An overview of the possibilities for tailor-made infrastructure can be found below.

We are looking forward to supporting your analytical inquiries with our tailor-made infrastructure.
