Linkam offer market leading solutions in hot stage and freeze-drying microscopy, optical DSC, and thermodynamic sample characterisation. We develop and manufacture a broad range of temperature and environmental control stages that help you to characterise materials including pharmaceutical compounds, polymer composites, biological tissue, fibres, nanomaterials, minerals, and metals. Add thermal sample control from high (1500°C) to cryo temperatures. There are options for humidity, vacuum, and pressure control as well gas purging and electrical connections.
Linkam stages are used with light microscopes and a wide range of analytical techniques including Raman, FTIR, WAX/SAX and many more to visualise and characterise the properties of materials. Each of our instruments are designed and manufactured in house by our team of highly experienced electrical, software and mechanical design engineers. Alongside our standard range we offer customised solutions, where we work very closely with the researcher to design, prototype, and manufacture a bespoke system.
