Scanning Electron Microscope Prisma E

Scanning Electron Microscope Prisma E

The Prisma E Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) combines a wide array of imaging and analytical modalities with advanced automation to offer the most complete solution of any instrument in its class. It is ideal for industrial research and development, quality control, and failure analysis applications that require high resolution, sample flexibility and an easy-to-use operator interface. 


  • Elemental information at your fingertips

Live composition-based image coloring for intuitive elemental analysis with optional ChemiSEM Technology and integrated energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS). Speed up your work and obtain the most complete sample information with always-on analysis.

  • Excellent image quality

Excellent image quality at low kV and low vacuum thanks to flexible vacuum modes, including through-the-lens differential pumping. Simultaneous secondary electron (SE) and backscattered electron (BSE) imaging in every mode of operation.

  • Minimize sample preparation time

Low vacuum and ESEM capability enable charge-free imaging and analysis of nonconductive and/or hydrated specimens.

  • In-situ study of materials in their natural state

With the Prisma E SEM's environmental SEM (ESEM) mode, samples can be imaged even if they are hot, dirty, outgassing or wet.

  • Excellent analytical capabilities

Excellent analytical capabilities with a chamber that allows 3 simultaneous EDS detectors, EDS ports that are 180° opposite, wavelength-dispersive spectroscopy (WDS), coplanar EDS/EBSD and high-quality charge-free EDS and EBSD in low vacuum.

  • Easy to use

Easy to use, intuitive software with user guidance and undo functionality makes highly effective operation possible for novice users, while enabling experts to do their work faster and with fewer mouse clicks.
