Magneto- and bacteriodrome are devices for microscopic observation of magnetic field influence on magnetic compounds or organisms. They originate from research on magnetotactic bacteria, but find their application in wide variety of fields, such as: medical research, biology or material science
The device is primarily composed of four components:
- a digital microscope or zoom lens used for observation of a studied sample
- a source of magnetic field which allows for precise control of intensity and direction of the magnetic field to which the sample is subjected
- a non-magnetic motorized stage which allows for smooth control of the sample’s location
- a control electronics and an advanced computer software which controls the entire system and allows for microscope image recording and vision processing
Portable Spinning Magnetometer (PSM) is the world’s most compact and affordable device for measurement of remanent magnetization of standard, homogeneous one-inch core samples. It is also the only device on the market which has ability to indicate the level of the sample’s homogeneity
The device was designed with ease of use and maintenance free operation in mind. The inbuilt gravity compensation mechanism allows for smooth and effortless sample exchange. The calibration is performed with a single calibration sample and there is no need for any mechanical adjustment of the device. The system is also automatically adjusting the attenuation and number of rotations depending on the sample’s strength.
VFTB is a sensitive and versatile instrument for measurement of magnetic properties of materials. Due to its high sensitivity, it is an ideal instrument for research in Rock Magnetism and Environmental Magnetism and can measure weakly magnetic materials, such as sandstone, limestone, soil etc.
It can also be used for magnetic analysis in the field of material science e.g. analysis of synthetic materials, thermal behavior of permanent magnets etc.
A self-contained tabletop Alternating Field Demagnetizer with peak field 150mT (customizable) and minimum settable field 0.1mT. The instrument can be operated through an intuitive LCD user interface embedded in the control unit or from a connected PC. The interface apart from setting a peak field allows for control of the ramp step in uT
The sample manipulation can be done either manually with a specially designed sample holder allowing for orthogonal orientation of three 1-inch core samples or two 23mm cubic samples or with a specially designed tumbler.
