3D Nano-Manufacturing

Micro-Pipette + TS Series The Nano-Bio Lab at the University of Texas at Dallas saw vibration noise not being isolated by their optical table. As a result, they turned to the TS-150 vibration isolation table as a solution to help remove the low-frequency vibration noise from limiting their research.

Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope + TS Series

Keyence VK-X250 + TS Series Researchers at Essilor USA observed a substantial amount of vibration noise limiting their Keyence VK-X250 3D Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope. The resulting vibration noise affected their surface roughness measurements, resulting in inaccurate results. To combat these issues, Essilor worked with Herzan to discover the best solution for their instrument given… Read More

Electrophysiology + TS Series

Electrophysiology + TS Series A consortium of researchers aimed to understand binocular encoding within the Damselfly Pre-motor Target Tracking Systems. Paloma Bellido of the University of Minnesota worked with Herzan to remove vibration noise from the electrophysiology testing setup created. Ultimately, the testing setup helped record intracellularly from neurons in damselflies.

Measuring Casimir Force

Measuring Casimir Force + TS Series Researchers at Boston University were in search of isolating mechanical noise from a custom metrology platform consisting of a MEMs accelerometer, which was re-purposed to perform a sensitive, room temperature measurement of the Casimir force.

Electron Microscopy

SEM + AVI Series The Zewail Group operating a Quanta FEG 650 interfaced with a custom optical set-up to enable ultrafast electron microscopy imaging. Feeding laser into SEM chamber requires positional stability within a few micrometers, so SEM internal air isolation was not in use. Vibration levels

In-Vitro Fertilization

IVF + TS Series Fertility Research Associates needed an isolation system to reduce the environmental vibrations affecting their intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) process. They chose the TS system based on the recommendation of a colleague who had previous experience. The TS immediately

Surface Analysis

UHV STM + AVI Series Researchers at the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at Newcastle University were facing limitations in the performance of their Omicron Variable Temperature UHV-STM.  They had determined that vibrations from a nearby highway were preventing them from using the instrument


Bio Applications + TS Series The Heinrich Lab built a custom force probe to investigate the adhesive properties and other mechanical characteristics of biomolecules to further their cutting-edge bioengineering research. They soon found that environmental noise was limiting the

Ion Current Measurement

SICM + AVI Series There are three instrumentation setups in the Baker Group that make use of the AVI-200 active vibration isolation system. Our studies are mainly focused on scanned probe microscopy, where is a nanopipette filled with electrolyte is used to either map the local ion current of a given sample or to obtain… Read More


MEMS + TS Series The Turner Group is using interferometry to measure the deflection on an AFM probe. The instrument is being used to investigate adhesion and surface properties of nanoscale materials for MEMS applications. Despite being placed on an air-based isolation table, the instrument’s measurements
