Artemis CCD has introduced the QS14 thermoelectrically cooled CCD camera, designed for scientists that need rapid, high-quality images in low-light conditions.
All biological specimens are three-dimensional. A greater understanding of the structure-function relationship in cells and tissues is now within reach through high-resolution correlation of chemical markers and structural components in three dimensions.
Electron microscopes are thousands of times more powerful than light microscopes, capable of visualizing single atoms and detecting differences in their positions as small as 50 picometers. Unfortunately, most biological specimens share characteristics that pose challenges to scientists’ ability to realize EM’s full potential.
Low-energy electrons interact much more strongly with the sample than the high-energy electrons from classical transmission electron microscopes. Electrons in the LVEM5 are strongly scattered by organic materials resulting in strong differentiation of features.
