FEI Verios 460 scanning electron microscope

Model: FEI Verios 460

Status: installed (2014) - imaging ready

  • Modern detectors including routine SE and BSE (CBS) detectors
  • New high contrast detectors allow optimal imaging of more sensitive biological samples
  • 1kV - 30kV with resolution better than 1nm at 500V
  • Beam deceleration - high resolution imaging and high surface sensitivity at very low kV
  • EDAX energy dispersive spectrometer
  • Monochromator that engages below 5kV to improve image quality
  • Beam blanker - Limits the dose on sensitive, biological samples
  • Quorum cryo-transfer system PP3010T for imaging quick frozen hydrated specimens without chemical fixation and dehydration changes
  • See FEI website (
