TSS Microscopy started operations in 2003 as Technical Sales Solutions, a company founded to address the growing need for cost-effective options that allowed more labs to obtain high-performance SEM and FIB. Since then, with hundreds of SEM, TEM, FIB and dual beam installations completed worldwide, we’ve grown our team and our support offerings to become more than an equipment re-seller. We are proud to now be a full-service solution provider in the electron microscopy market. Remanufactured instruments are a great way to stretch budgets while still enabling leading edge research. We also support customers with accessories, consumables, service and training and alleviate uncertainty about investing in a pre-owned equipment. Whether buying or selling, we stand with you at every step of the process. We can handle all the logistics – from consulting, packing and crating, delivery, and installation, to comprehensive training, warranty, and reliable after-care maintenance. Our inventory features microscopes from all major manufacturers, enabling us to focus on finding the instrument solution that is right for your application needs.
Advanced Microscopy Techniques (AMT) has devoted its design and manufacturing efforts toward the goal of providing excellence in digital camera imaging systems for the TEM.
These systems are sold directly to customers, through domestic and international representatives, and through TEM vendors. With an installed based of over 1100 camera systems, AMT has developed a substantial local and international infrastructure in optics, electronics, software, sales and support. Our use of the best available technologists working together provide excellent customer communication and knowledge. This team approach allows AMT to supply world-class products on a global scale at competitive prices. As a result, AMT enjoys an excellent reputation for reliability and support for both its products and its customers.
No single camera or camera configuration covers every restriction imposed by the TEM or by the user. Life and Material Sciences applications can require similar camera imaging configurations, but must be located in differing positions on the TEM . Therefore, AMT has created numerous options to fit user applications, TEM configurations, and price considerations.
AMT provides the highest performance optics with specially designed finite-conjugate lenses for all our products. We are proud to have pioneered the use of high resolution RESTM phosphors, which minimize electron scattering effects and provide superior sensitivity. AMT offers a complete line of digital imaging capabilities from 2.8 megapixel to 16 megapixel format. All systems provide sharp images with high dynamic range and low noise.
Advanced Research Systems, Inc. was started in 1986 by Ravi Bains to provide cryogenic solutions for low temperature research. ARS has evolved as a world class manufacturer of closed cycle cryocoolers and laboratory cryogenic systems. ARS is the only major supplier of laboratory cryostats that also manufactures 4 K closed cycle cryocoolers for its use.
Manufacturing our own cryocoolers allows us to seamlessly adapt our cryostats for challenging applications where the cryocooler must be customized for a specific application. ARS has sales and service capabilities worldwide, with an international sales force that is well trained to support our customers and provide guidance in the selection of cryogenic equipment that suits customers’ needs at a fair price.
We recognize that the quality of both our product and our customer relationships determines our future success in this competitive world. To facilitate this, we continue to invest in improving and expanding our capabilities and in developing new products for the future. We feel that the close working relationships we have forged with our customers over the years are testimony to our success.

BaySpec, Inc., founded in 1999 with 100% manufacturing in the USA (San Jose, California), is a vertically integrated spectral sensing company. The company designs, manufactures and markets advanced spectral instruments, including UV-VIS-NIR-SWIR spectrometers, benchtop and portable NIR/SWIR and Raman analyzers, confocal Raman microscopes, hyperspectral imagers, mass spectrometers, and OEM spectral engines and components. R&D Applications include:
Materials: Material characterization is an ideal application area for Raman spectroscopy, due to its high chemical specificity and rapid, non-contact measurement. Solid, liquid, or gaseous, nearly all materials possess a unique Raman spectral fingerprint. The technique can be readily scaled to microscopic approaches, allowing interrogation of extremely small volumes and samples, such as nanomaterials. Characterization of nanomaterials is critical to determining structural and conformational properties. Raman spectroscopy is a highly efficient technique to study the electronic properties, compositions, and mechanical stresses in these materials, all of which can manifest in Raman band shape and frequency shift.
Semiconductor: Raman spectroscopy has proven to be one of the most effective tools for characterization of semiconductor properties and for manufacturing process/quality control because materials such as Si, SiGe, InGaAs, GaAs, GaN, and graphene exhibit precise, distinct Raman bands. Applied in a microscopic approach, the Raman technique has been successfully implemented to determine microstructure composition on thin-films, strain in the multilayer device, and to identify defects across the wafer surface.
Process/Reaction: Unlike conventional UV-Vis and NIR monitoring techniques, Raman spectroscopy provides molecular specificity in real-time measurements of gas, liquid, and solid samples, both natural and synthetic. These attributes are responsible for the emerging reliance on Raman spectroscopy for a number of online process and reaction monitoring applications. Numerous sampling options, including fiber optic probes with long reach and stand-off probes for measuring inside containers and vessels make the technique adaptable to a myriad of environments and conditions.
Surface-Enhanced Raman: Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) utilizes specialized metal substrates to allow Raman signal enhancement up to 10 orders of magnitude. This phenomenon occurs when the molecules of interest are in very close proximity to the metal substrate, and is generally used for evaporated solutions or particle-surface characterization. The enhanced Raman signal with SERS has extended its applications in many fields, such as biological studies, to quantify trace substances or identify very small structures such as cell surface proteins. Intracellular SERS is also possible, via the injection of metallic nanoparticles, to study internal structures and analytes.
