Benchtop Scanning Electron Microscope

A powerful yet economic benchtop scanning electron microscope from Nikon and JEOL.

The latest in benchtop SEM technology, the JCM-6000Plus "NeoScope™" is a touch panel controlled, multifunctional desktop scanning microscope that answers the increasingly diversified needs among users worldwide. The JCM-6000Plus is equipped with the high-sensitivity semiconductor detectors found in high-end instruments, making it easy to acquire contrast information about specimen composition, and enabling efficient analysis. The series continues to include the high-vacuum functionality and secondary electron detector, offering the ability to clearly observe fine structures on the specimen surface at high magnification.
