In electron microscopy, preparation and handling of the sample are very important.

Preparation starts with fixation, then the sample is dehydrated and completely dried, mounted on a holder, sputter coated with metal and finally observed under the scanning electron microscope.

In any of these steps the morphology of the sample can be affected and artefacts may occur.

In our laboratory, the same person does all steps of preparation from fixation to the final observation.
This allows for a better control of the process,
along with continuous potential for innovation.

Understanding the forces operating in the micro environment of each particular sample and how they influence the sample's morphology is essential for interpreting the microscopy findings. This is our aim.
