Electron microscopes fire electrons and create images, magnifying micrometer and nanometer structures by up to ten million times, providing a spectacular level of detail, even allowing researchers to view single atoms.
From the mites crawling on our skin to a hidden world inside our own bodies, electron microscopy has revealed epic battles between our immune system and diseases, the tangled mass of fibers that constitutes blood clots, how diseased cells and tissues can wreak havoc on our health, and how our bodies are vibrant ecosystems in their own right that play host to millions of bacteria.
By showing us the structure of materials at the nanoscale, electron microscopy provides a way to understand the link between material composition, structure, and performance, leading to technological advances including smaller, faster computers, chemical sensors, targeted drug delivery, high-performance materials, water filters and many more.
The key areas of expertise are:
- Scanning electron microscopes
- Transmission electron microscopes
- DualBeam (FIB-SEM) instruments
- XPS instruments
- Sample preparation equipment
- 3D Visualization, Analysis Software
- EM System Software
