Biological SEM Workshop: A Complete Picture is organized by Electron Microscopy Sciences (EMS) and will be held from Apr 09 - 11, 2019 at Hatfield, Pennsylvania, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Individuals who currently perform or will be responsible for the preparation of samples and/or operation of the SEM in a research, academic, or industrial setting. This course will introduce participants to methods of sample preparation and SEM parameters and operation needed for accurate analysis. Scope of Class: The preparation of samples will start with determination of ROI and subsequent selection of gross cut orientation and determination of which dehydration technique to use: freeze drying, HMDS, Hitachi’s ionic liquid or critical point drying (CPD). The chemical processing required before CPD will be stressed. Special attention will be paid to orientation, stability and grounding of the sample when mounting to facilitate ease of imaging. The advantages, disadvantages and instrument requirements for the various coating materials: Au, Pt, Pt/Pd will be discussed. Selection of accelerating voltage (kV) and spot size are critical for surface detail, resolution, and charging and will be covered in detail. Parameters such as working distance for depth of field (Dfi) and resolution, plus tilt and raster rotate will be examined for proper image collection. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
