The recently released Revolve hybrid microscope from Echo Laboratories – which has generated considerable interest because it combines the functionality
of both upright and inverted microscopes into one instrument – supports the use of Negative-Stiffness vibration isolation when the microscope is being used in vibration-compromised environments.
The characteristics of these types of hybrid drives present a practical solution when a position needs to be detected with high precision and moved repeatedly over long travel ranges, or when a target position needs to be reached with nanometer precision. Applications areas include precision movement of telescopes, measuring technology or surface inspection, semiconductor manufacturing, microscopy, and laser technology.
Since the release of the first commercial atomic force microscope (AFM) about 30 years ago, technology advances have steadily been implemented to improve their performance. Now, the most recent advance in ambient-temperature AFMs is making them more compact, portable and user-friendly, which is enabled by Negative-Stiffness vibration isolation.

Anyone suffering from symptoms such as a cough, fever or headaches and muscle pains wants to know whether it’s corona or simply a cold or the flu – especially during the winter season. And ideally as fast as possible. The necessary swab is performed quickly. For the subsequent analysis of the sample, it can either be sent to a large laboratory or a check can be performed for the patient on-site using a so-called point-of-care (PoC) system. In spite of the different areas of use, both have one thing in common: drives from FAULHABER guarantee reliable analyses.
