The spread of COVID-19 has led to great changes in the lives of people worldwide. This includes the need for increased social distancing and the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to minimize the risk of spreading and acquiring disease from others and the surrounding environment. The use of PPE, including gloves, safety goggles, and a mask causes difficulties for failure analysis and particle isolation where precise microscopic sample handling is often required. Precise manipulations using probes and other handheld tools while looking through a microscope, are much more difficult while wearing PPE.
The Micro Support Axis Pro micromanipulator is an excellent solution for performing precise microscopic sampling where PPE is required.
