Steve Chapman SEM & TEM  Courses World Wide

Steve first became involved with electron microscopes in 1964 at the University of Birmingham, England. Moving on to working as an EM service engineer in the UK his service activities as a senior engineer eventually took him throughout Europe. Electron Microscopy: Freezing Samples. Graphics courtesy of IDG Books Cryo EM is a microscopy technique in which the sample to be viewed is frozen in a very cold liquid refrigerant in order to preserve and protect it during observation.

Electron Microscopy: Freezing Samples

Biological molecules need a solvent to be stable. In most cases, a water/salt solution is enough. Evaporation, however, needs to be eliminated when a sample is inserted into the electron beam. This can be accomplished by either blotting the sample dry for negative staining (see previous section), or by freezing. Why Are Samples Frozen? Freezing a sample is as simple as dropping a prepared grid into a very cold storage medium. Preventing cubic ice can be accomplished by using a sufficiently cold freezing agent. The very properties that make liquid ethane such a favorable cryogen also make it dangerous to work with. Sample Preparation Figure 1. As mentioned above, a biological sample is quickly frozen to preserve it's hydrated state. Figure 2. Several modifications are common to this procedure.

The Life and Death of a Tungsten Hairpin Filament. Many words have been written about filament saturation and filament life, not all with years of experience behind them!

The Life and Death of a Tungsten Hairpin Filament

Sometimes when visiting laboratories one has the feeling that the life of the filament is far more important than the quality of the results, so let us try to demystify filament life? The life of a tungsten hairpin filament very much depends upon its use, the applications in a particular laboratory. Medium to low magnification applications in the transmission electron microscope (TEM) may only require low emission currents (10 to 15 micro amps) with a long filament life resulting.

High resolution studies require higher operating currents (20 to 45 micro amps) and when demanding more emission the life of the filament will suffer. Microscopy: Microscopy is any technique for producing visible images of structures or details too small to otherwise be seen by the human eye, using a microscope or other magnification tool.

The microscope was first applied to biological material in the early seventeenth century by researchers such as Robert Hooke and Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, and remains a pivotal tool in learning about biology today.

SEMopenedsamplechamber Analogtypescanningelectronmicroscope A scanning electron microscope (SEM) is a type of electron microscope that images a sample by scanning it with a high-energy beam of electrons in a raster scan pattern.

Scanning electron microscope

The electrons interact with the atoms that make up the sample producing signals that contain information about the sample's surface topography, composition, and other properties such as electrical conductivity. The types of signals produced by an SEM include secondary electrons, back-scattered electrons (BSE), characteristic X-rays, light (cathodoluminescence), specimen current and transmitted electrons. Secondary electron detectors are common in all SEMs, but it is rare that a single machine would have detectors for all possible signals.

These simple and powerful statements form the basis of the cell theory, first formulated by a group of European biologists in the mid-1800s. So fundamental are these ideas to biology that it is easy to forget they were not always thought to be true. Robert Hooke's microscope. Histology-World! Histology.

The SPI Supplies List of Blogs for Microscopy and Microanalysis

To some degree, blogs mean different things to different people, and we have seem some that were labeled as "blogs" but were more just newsletters or periodic mailings. Some call this part of the electronic media "Web 2.0". We like to think of a blog as a running commentary of an individual or group of persons, who make periodic postings on some topic of interest along with the provision for others who read their blog postings, to comment and for yet others to comment on the comments. Some consider the following of blogs to be a waste of time. On the other hand, there are those who have followed some of the investment advice (e.g. The Microscopy Blog - Microscope Experiments, Techniques, and Miscellany. Microscope World Blog.

Electron microscope photography - Microscopy Blog. Imaging & Microscopy Resource. The Arduino IDE for ARM microcontrollers is just plain awesome. I’ve been using both an Uno and a Mega board for quite a while now, and continue to be impressed with how flexible these inexpensive boards are. Recently, I wanted to read the output of a pair of rotary encoders, like these: Encoders can be used for all sorts of things, from acting as a user control knob (with endless turns), to acting as a verification system for motors, to confirm that a commanded # of motor moves has been completed accurately. In fact, linear and rotary encoders are used on microscope stages for this exact reason, to confirm that the stage actually went some specified distance. So – I wanted to use an encoder as a knob for user input.

Encoders output a set of signals, which run either open or closed against a ground, based on the position and direction of the knob turn. Byte range = 50; if ( positionLeft > range){ knobLeft.write(range); } if ( positionLeft < -range){ knobLeft.write(-range); } - Microscopy Magazine and Blog. Thoughts on imaging from the director of the NIC@UCSF/QB3. I just came across this interesting PDF summarizing the performance of Point Grey cameras. Point Grey is a machine vision camera manufacturer, and I don’t normally think of using machine vision cameras for microscopy. However, some of their cameras have respectable performance – I wouldn’t want to use them for low light fluorescence work, but for brightfield imaging, and possible for routine fluorescence imaging, they would be fine. Most interestingly, they are very cheap – all are under $2k, and many are under $1k. For example, the GS3-U3-23S6M-C is a 1920 x 1200 pixel CMOS camera, with 6.8 e- read noise, and 76% QE at 525 nm.
