PSEM eXplorer


The Only Integrated SEM/EDX System

Now in its third generation, the PSEM eXplorer is a scanning electron microscope that is designed for the automated imaging and elemental analysis of a wide spectrum of surfaces and particulate. A unique blend of hardware ruggedization and software sophistication creates a system platform that is readily accessible.



The Aspex PSEM eXplorer system provides a fully integrated SEM and EDX platform for addressing the microscale visualization needs of a diverse range of users. It seamlessly provides high magnification imaging, rapid nondestructive compositional analysis, and robust computer automation for size, shape and elemental composition.

Industry uses:

Industrialized by Design

The following founding manufacturing philosophies enable ASPEX’s units to be installed where the competition has never been:

  1. Stability & Reproducibility
  2. Minimized Downtime
  3. Reliability & Serviceability
  4. Evolved Staging
  5. Environmental Shielding
  6. Ease of Use
  7. Guaranteed Performance



Seamless Solutions for Microanalysis

Each ASPEX PSEM eXplorer comes equipped with the Perception software suite. When your needs go beyond manual microanalysis, Perception provides a powerful set of productivity tools for microanalysis.



Perception becomes the most efficient and accurate way to perform microanalysis when coupled with optional ASPEX software such as:

  1. AFA Automated Feature Analysis
  2. CFA Complex Feature Analysis
  3. MQA Metal Quality Analysis
  4. GSR Gun Shot Residue Analysis
