Polished Cross Sections
This sample preparation technique embeds the sample in epoxy, cuts through an area of interest and polishes that surface to a mirror finish so that the cross section can be examined by light microscopy or SEM. Useful in examining and measuring layered samples, looking for voids as well as many other FA applications.
Unknown Materials ID
Useful when you have a solid, liquid, gel, powder, fiber, or multiphase material of unknown origin that needs to be identified. By using a combination of microscopy techniques and in-house methods we are able to categorize your sample if not identify it specifically. Let us take the “un” out of your unknown.

Our consulting analytical microscopy service is ready to solve your problem.
When products or materials fail, many companies do not have the proper equipment, time, or expertise to investigate and resolve the situation internally. MicroVision Labs has provided failure analysis insight to a wide variety of industries (e.g. electronics, filter membranes, biomedical devices, polymers, metallurgy) for over 10 years. Let us help determine the cause of your product failure.
