What can biological EDS do for you? The answers to FAQs on analytical biological electron microscopy

New Webinar: What can biological EDS do for you? The answers to FAQs on analytical biological electron microscopy

Energy Dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS) measures and maps the distribution of elements within a sample. It is a powerful imaging tool, providing compositional data in combination with electron images to generate multi-colour electron microscopy, for fast and accurate identification of features within your samples.

This webinar will cover some of the frequestly asked questions we receive about biological EDS including how EDS can determine the distribution of native elements in cells, tissues and biomaterials, how the application of different stains can effect sample composition and subsequent imaging contrast, and how EDS can aid interpretation and identification of cellular ultrastruture.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The added value of compositional information for the identification & interpretation of cell & tissue ultrastructure
  • The range of techniques available with EDS, the type of information that can be obtained about biological samples & how EDS can be used to address a range of research questions
  • Recognising the effect that sample preparation has on the chemistry & imaging of biological specimens
