J. A. Woollam M-88 Ellipsometer
Determines multilayer thicknesses, optical constants, crystallinity, surface and interfacial roughness. Has a 300 mm programmable sample stage with motorized rotation and 88 wavelengths from 280 to 760 nm. Completes full spectrum measurement in 1/20 s.
Temperature cycling is similar to temperature shock testing, with the difference being that temperature cycling has slower transitions between temperature extremes. Two chambers were acquired; the larger unit is appropriate for cycling printed circuit board assemblies while the small unit is appropriate for individual devices. Both chambers provide standards-compliant conditions for air-to-air testing.
Highly Accelerated Stress Test (HAST) Chamber (vendor: ESPEC, model EHS-211M)
HAST exposes assemblies to 85% relative humidity at 100 °C, at up to 4 atm pressure. This drives moisture into organic packaging structures and triggers ionic corrosion.
Scanning CCD camera designed to create high quality images of 2-D DIGE gels. It’s high resolution and precise motion control, produces accurate multichannel images of Cy2-, Cy3, and Cy5-labeled gels. The system is also designed to image other fluorescent gel applications, and can be used with ECL Plex Western Blotting System. It is controlled from the Ettan DIGE Imager software, and can be set up for a variety of gel formats.
The Tecan EVO liquid handling system is utilized to automate the various protocols and procedures of the high-throughput biological assays. It contains a liquid handling arm (LiHa) that can work with both tubes and plates enabling rapid tube to multi-well plate sample transfers and dilutions. The LiHa is equipped with eight tips configured with a wide combination of fixed and disposable options. Bulk reagent additions can be performed with these devices or with integrated reagent dispensers.
