Our Applications

microtechnology applications


Microtechnology encompasses a wide array applications involving microelectronic and micro-mechanical parts and assembly of those parts. This class of applications stretches across a wide swath of industries from defense and consumer electronics to telecommunications and photonics.

medical device applications

Medical Device

Medical device manufacturing (MDM) in our eyes is a sub-segment of Microtechnology. Catheters, stents, pacemakers, implantable insulin pumps,glucose meters, thermometers, biochips, and microfluidic test cells all go through the same steps of design verification, assembly, quality assurance and inspection, and defect analysis we see in Microtechnology.

material science applications

Material Science

The Materials Science application space includes research and production efforts to generate novel materials and/or variations of existing materials. The base component of these materials can be metals, ceramics, polymers, petroleum, minerals, organics, or composites of the previously noted.

education applications


Educational tools are also being used at museums, aquariums, and parks to bring some incredibly fascinating knowledge from the ‘micro world’ to the general public.
sample preparation for electron microscopy

Sample Preparation for Electron Microscopy

In the field of electron microscopy, perfect sample preparation is a prerequisite and crucial step. Leica Microsystems offers a comprehensive product portfolio for preparation of biological, medical and industrial samples.
electronics & semiconductor applications


The Semiconductor application space includes both front-end of line (FEOL) and back end of line (BEOL) semiconductor production and R&D processes. Much of the production and R&D processes take place while the semiconductor products are still in wafer form.
forensic applications

Forensics Overview

Crime labs make heavy use of optical imaging systems. Imaging is used to identify materials, identify human characteristics, or tie a weapon to a crime. There are six major crime lab areas, which use both macro and micro optical imaging systems: DNA/Biology, Firearms/Toolmarks, Trace Evidence Chemistry/drug ID, fingerprints, footprints, and questioned documents.
industrial applications


Water and wastewater treatment plants need to monitor water quality at the incoming stage, throughout processing, and the end stage when the purified water is released. The water cycle has a big portion that is outside of being pumped to and from your home. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) takes on the task of monitoring natural water resources.
clinical applications


More diseases are being identified everyday. More patients are needing to know which diseases they have contracted everyday. More scientists are studying how these diseases are fought in the body. All this falls under pathology and as noted it is growing.
