Electron Microscopy

Standard Electron Microscopy (SEM and TEM) can provide valuable structural information when imaging cellular samples and imaging bio-compatible devices, but spectroscopic and microstructural-crystallographic techniques such as EDS/EDX (Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy) and EBSD ( Electron Backscatter Diffraction) can provide a whole additional level of insight. From the detection of nanoparticles in tissue as part of toxicity studies or understanding grain boundaries in bio-compatible devices, there is a broad range of bio-related applications that can benefit from these advanced Electron imaging techniques.
