Join Us August 2-6!

Herzan is excited to be exhibiting at the 2015 Microscopy and Microanalysis (M&M) meeting on August 2nd – 6th, located in beautiful Portland, Oregon. M&M provides an incredible opportunity for researchers and equipment manufacturers to share the latest innovations and technologies that are advancing the scientific research community.

Herzan will be showcasing two of its popular environmental solutions that support diverse microscopy needs: the AVI Series (active vibration isolation platform) and the WaveCatcher (site survey tool).
Stop by Booth 859 to experience the future of active vibration isolation with the AVI Series and learn how the WaveCatcher can save you time and money for your upcoming instrument.

We look forward to meeting you at the show!


The AVI Series

The AVI Series is a modular, scalable active vibration isolation platform, providing industry leading performance and accessibility to a variety of precision research microscopes.


The WaveCatcher

The WaveCatcher is Herzan’s intelligent and intuitive site survey tool designed to make understanding environmental noise in a laboratory easy and affordable.



Herzan is excited to begin its series of informative tutorials at M&M, offering attendees the opportunity to learn more about the world of environmental isolation. Both tutorials will have a maximum number of attendees (20), meaning you should sign up as soon as you get to the show to reserve your seat!

Food and drinks will be provided, so come have fun with us and learn about ways to maximize our research through various environmental solutions!

  • What: Learn How Site Surveys Can Save You Time and Money

WaveCatcher-Software-Screenshot-1440PXUnderstanding the ambient noise conditions of a user’s location is not only required by most instrument manufacturers, it also saves a research institution money should the environment prove unsuitable for the equipment being installed. Most instruments operating at high levels of precision and magnification have designated environmental specifications that inform users of the allowable ambient noise levels for the installation location. These specifications are specifically designed to gain the maximum use out of the instrument and to reduce the level of noise found in a generated image. In this tutorial, we will review why knowing this information prior to the installation of an instrument can not only save you time and money, but also a logistical headache should the instrument being installed not operate as intended.

  • What: Understand the Difference In Active Vibration Isolation Systems

AVI-Series-Internal-View-1440pxChoosing the right type of control system and form factor are only two of the many decisions to make when defining the right active vibration isolation platform. Differences in cost, performance, and technology make many of the active vibration isolation systems today unique from one another. In this tutorial, we will review the differences between multiple active vibration isolation systems and learn how specific platforms are better suited for end user research needs.
