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. The surface properties and interactions between the material and tissue are key for predicting the acceptance of the material by the host body. This is particularly important in the designing implants, which have to withstand a prolong exposure inside a human body. TESCAN SEM systems are ideal instruments for the characterization of biomaterials with high resolution. Wide Field Optics allows easy navigation on the sample at low magnification and then easily switching to high depth of field, and high resolution imaging. All instruments can be easily equipped with a wide variety of detectors and analytical tools for compositional and structural analyses. Non-coated and highly charging samples can be observed under variable pressure conditions in the UniVac mode. With our FIB-SEM systems, the researchers can cut directly into the materials and investigate material-tissue interfaces or visualize them in 3D.
