Scanning electron microscopy has become a key technology in biotechnology, life science and medical science. Investigations of cell morphology, development of biocompatible materials, tissue engineering, microbiology and many others require advanced imaging techniques with high resolution. TESCAN offers a complete portfolio of state-of-the-art solutions for life science electron microscopy to help scientists and researchers to achieve their goals. The available instrumentation encompasses ultrahigh resolution imaging, variable pressure observations, tomographic methods, and complex solutions including correlative light-electron microscopy or cryo-SEM techniques.

 Biomedical Engineering
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing areas of engineering today. It combines the latest concepts from medicine, biotechnology and engineering for designing a variety of technologies such as support matrices for cell growth, artificial tissue, and implantable biomedical devices / more
 Cell & Tissue Morphology
Cell membrane functions as a protection layer to the intracellular environment and together with cytoskeleton defines the outer shape of a cell. In addition to its structural role, the membrane is also a place where many important events occur / more
Microbial biofilms have been playing a major role in infection process, disease spreading and resistance to antibiotics. Uncontrolled microbial contamination is a common cause of rejection of biomedical devices such as plastic catheters, prosthetic implants and medical devices / more
Electron microscopy plays an integral role in research and development of new drug formulations. Structure, particle size, porosity and contaminants change the final activity of the drug / more
 Subcellular Analysis

Subcellular analysis provides information hidden under the surface of cells and tissue. Typically this area of research has been a domain of transmission electron microscopy. However, SEM technology has becoming more popular in this field / more

Plant and Animal Biology
High resolution and large depth of focus makes SEM a great method for observing topography of biological samples, such as animal and plant fossils, bones, insects, plants and even small animals / more
Low temperature scanning electron microscopy (Cryo-SEM) has become an established technique for capturing and observing biological samples close to their natural state. It is a method of choice, where the traditional sample preparation (e.g. critical point drying) causes unwanted changes in the sample structure. / more
