Carl Zeiss

carl zeissOptical and Electron Microscopy for Forensics – only available from Carl Zeiss Ltd

Light and electron microscopes are widely used for the analysis of very small specimens and the conclusive determination of the origin of many materials that are crucial to the chain of evidence.
The scanning electron microscope (SEM) resolves features as small as a nanometer for determination of shape and size. Under variable pressure (VP) conditions EVO MA is used for the  analysis of small fragments of non-conductive material on human soft tissue. In conjunction with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), the system  can determine the elemental composition of the samples.

Used in combination optical light microscopes such as  AxioZoom.A1, and a compound  microscope such as the Axio Scope.A1, allows for a wide range of forensic examination and analysis. e.g. Failure Analysis and Fractography,  Paint Analysis, Gunshot Residue, Forensic Toxicology are all possible. email:
