Scanning Electron Microscopy

Our group is equipped with the TESCAN VEGA-3LM Scanning Electron Microscope with LaB6 cathode. It is also equipped with Oxford Instruments x-act EDS detector which allows to easily determine the composition of the investigatetd samples. It is also equipped with various detectors, such as BSE, or STEM detector. The microscope is able to work with biological samples in low vacuum mode with LVSTD. If needed the sample might also be frozen on the Peltier colled stage. The laboratory is also equipped with Quorum Technologies Sputter Coater, which is used to coat the samples with selected metal or non-metal in order to improve SEM results.
