Electron Microscopy Markets

Electron microscopy (EM) is a technique for obtaining high resolution images of biological and non-biological specimens. It is widely used in biomedical research to investigate the detailed structure of tissues, cells, organelles and macromolecular complexes. The Microscopy field is driven by an increased focus on nanotechnology. Significant R&D funding, combined with collaboration between specialist companies is influencing significant advancements in Microscope technology.

Essex X-Ray is a trusted partner of leading SEM & X-Ray Microscope manufacturers, developing HV interconnection systems for high performance applications. Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) are scientific instruments that focus an electron beam on the surface of a sample, detailing structure and composition. Interaction between the electrons and atoms produce signals containing information about the surface topography and material contrast, which form high resolution images. This versatile equipment is widely used in physical & life sciences, semiconductor and industry.
