MicroTool™ Kit 3 contains 20 tools for sample measurements. Two tool designs allow measurement of linear sample dimensions, and two allow measurement of both linear and angular dimensions. Use them to accurately measure small and fragile samples with minimal chance of sample damage. The tool tips are 10 micrometers thick and are both optically and X-ray transparent. Each tool is mounted on a 25 mm pen.
Measurements using microscope reticles are rendered inaccurate if the sample dimension of interest is not perpendicular to the viewing direction, or if the sample is contained in an optically distorting liquid drop. To get accurate measurements, just position these transparent tools next to, under or on top of your sample. Dispense sample-containing liquid onto the tool or dip the tool into sample-containing liquid or powder.
Each tool is mounted on a 0.025"/ 0.64 mm diameter nonmagnetic solid stainless steel rod. Hold them in a standard 0.7 mm mechanical pencil (included with each kit), or in a micromanipulator.
