Uncontrolled microbial contamination is a common cause of rejection of biomedical devices such as plastic catheters, prosthetic implants and medical devices.
- High-resolution imaging of the microbial surface using SEM helps better understanding of the morphology of microbial populations, bacteria communication and the biofilm formation.
- TESCAN SEMs help researchers to visualize microbial populations with great focal depth and high resolution.
- The microbial biofilms can be observed non coated with the environment-like conditions either using our variable pressure UniVac mode or using the Cryo-SEM adaptation.
- For scientists interested in the ultrastructure features of individual, uncoated bacteria, we offer ultrahigh-resolution SEMs, which are specifically designed to provide the unprecedented sub-nanometre resolution at very low accelerating voltages.
