Scanning Electron Microscopy
New to TAMU CVP: Surface evaluation of medical
devices using Hitachi TM3000 Tabletop SEM
This low vacuum SEM, capable of magnifications of
30,000X, will be useful in analyzing specimens
before histology is performed.
The SEM suite includes:
- Motorized stage to allow more control of the images taken to
make a map of the surface
- A stent adaptor that will permit visualization of all outer
surfaces without removing the specimen from the vacuum chamber
- 3D view software.
- energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) cabilities to
determine the surface composition of samples
