SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY UNIT (SEM)

Electron microscopy (EM) is a specialized field of science and technology used for Research and Development (R&D) purposes to produce high-quality research. Electron microscopy has been used in various areas of life and material sciences such as marine life, microbiology, toxicology, parasitology, biochemistry, botany, cell biology, forensic, metal, polymer, membrane; sedimentology, silver nanoparticles, microplastic and so on.

What is SEM? SEM stands for Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), a beam of electrons that go through to detect the surface of a cell, tissue and samples, creating a detailed image of the 3D surface. It can achieve an optimum magnification of more than 100,000 times with high resolution, thus allowing viewing of fine ultrastructure. SEM also can be used to analyse the chemical make-up and physical properties of a specimen using Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy X-Ray (EDS or EDX).

Our Main Objectives:

Providing High-level Service and Research Facilities and Training in the Microscopy and Microanalysis for government and private agencies.

Application of Electron Microscopy Field has been used in various areas of life and material sciences such as marine life, microbiology, toxicology, parasitology, biochemistry, botany, cell biology, forensic, metal, polymer, membrane; sedimentology, silver nanoparticles, microplastic and etc.
