Structural analysis of biological samples helps researchers better understand complex relationships between the structure and function of organelles, cells, and tissues. Combining the scanning electron microscope (SEM) with a nano-machining capability of the focused ion beam (FIB) opens a wide range of possibilities. FIB-SEM systems are widely used for routine preparation of ultra-thin transmission electron microscopy (TEM) specimens and for their capability of precise cross-sectioning and 3D volume imaging.
This webinar offers a practical overview of SEM imaging applications and focuses on the advanced 3D characterization of biological and beam sensitive samples. We will introduce techniques such as:
