SEM provides a surface landscape-like view of of a bulk specimen. Tissue samples for SEM are prepared by glutaraldehyde- and osmium-fixation and subsequent dehydration followed by critical point drying in liquid carbon dioxide. The specimens are coated by metal sputtering for proper image formation.Samples for SEM imaging can be prepared from

  • tissue
  • cells
  • bacteria
  • viruses
  • nanoparticles
  • macromolecules
  • bio-, and other related materials

The service also include consultation in

  • planning of experiments
  • sample processing
  • microscopic examination
  • recording of images
  • reporting the results and their interpretation.
