The glass slide above was cleaved with the LatticeAx 120. The LatticeAx produces clean edges without creating fractures. This method was used to prepare samples for further analysis using and AFM of samples mounted on the surface of the slide. 

This technique was used by researchers at Penn State to downsize a glass slide containing carefully prepared samples, after it was discovered that the slide was too tall for the analytical equipment into which it needed to be places. This saved the research teams days of extra labor to recreate samples on a new slide. Read More
