Agilent Technologies’ Award-Winning, Ultrafast Express Test Now Compatible with All G200 Stages and DCM II, XP Heads

Santa Clara, CA | Posted on December 3rd, 2013

Designed and optimized for exclusive use with Agilent's popular Nano Indenter G200, Express Test delivers high-precision data on a wide variety of materials. Methods enabled by Express Test are ideal for instrumented indentation applications involving metals, glasses, ceramics, structural polymers, thin films and low-k materials. Express Test allows up to 100 indents to be performed at 100 different surface sites in 100 seconds.

In addition to offering researchers working in scientific and industrial settings unprecedented speed, Agilent Express Test affords remarkable versatility and ease of use. Express Test enables the Nano Indenter G200 to be operated in controlled-force or controlled-displacement mode. Testing is simple: Just point and shoot.

With Express Test, area-function calibration can be performed in minutes, Young's modulus and hardness can be rapidly evaluated with robust statistics, and quantitative maps of mechanical properties can be generated in record time. Agilent's premier-performance NanoSuite software lets users automatically generate histograms and 3D mechanical-properties maps. Graphs and supporting data are easily exported to Microsoft Excel.

Additional product information on the Nano Indenter G200 stages, DCM II and XP heads, Express Test and NanoSuite software can be found at www.agilent.com/find/Nano.
