Thermo Scientific Phenom desktop electron microscopes for biomedical research

Tuesday, 01 October, 2019 | Supplied by: ATA Scientific Pty Ltd


Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is a valuable tool that can be used to investigate a wide range of materials for their structure and composition. When used in biomedical research, SEM images can help gain further insights to describe tissue or organ structures and to enhance scientists’ understanding about certain diseases. To meet the ever-growing needs of different types of users and labs, there is a wide array of SEMs available.

While traditional SEMs remain relatively large and difficult to operate, Thermo Scientific Phenom desktop SEMs are designed to be smaller, faster and easier to use. From sample loading to imaging, the Phenom ProX offers fast time to image (<30 s) with a magnification range up to 150,000x and fully integrated detectors (BSD, SED and EDS for elemental composition). The Phenom XL desktop SEM goes further to allow operators to quickly examine many samples or different spots within one large object. This is achieved using the sample holder, which is able to accommodate up to 36 small specimens on stubs or one single large object with a maximum size of 100 cm2.

Building on the performance of these models, the Phenom Pharos desktop SEM has a field emission (FEG) source that is able to deliver magnifications of up to one million times. It delivers higher resolution images in the same compact design of the Phenom SEM series, while maintaining the same easy and intuitive operation. Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) can be added to analyse the elemental composition of samples.

ATA Scientific aims to make SEM accessible to everyone, providing users with all the information needed to invest in the appropriate tool for their application.
