Enhance your imaging workflows and ultrastructural data using Biological EDS

Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometry (EDS) enables us to collect compositional information in combination with electron images.
Biological EDS can measure and map elements within cells and tissues at the nanoscale, generating multi-colour images of cellular and subcellular features.
The data generated provides ultrastructural context, mapping of elements within the biological samples and relative quantification of those elements.

As an electron microscopist working in life science it is easy to appreciate the added value of compositional information when characterising cell and tissue ultrastructure.
When I was first introduced to EDS there were a lot of questions I needed to ask in order to know if I could use biological EDS to enhance my imaging tool-set. I want to share the answers to those questions with other biological electron microscopists, highlighting the advantages EDS offers to biological research.

In this webinar, you will learn how:

  • To prepare your biological samples for EDS
  • Biological EDS complements electron microscopy as an imaging technique
  • EDS enables you to navigate your sample easily and efficiently with AZtecLive
  • To monitor chemical variables with ultrastructural context and distinguishing features with and without labelling
