Today’s electron microscopy instruments are reaching ever higher resolutions, so a site’s environmental requirements are likewise becoming ever more demanding. In a TEM, the vertical vibration of the specimen holder will cause focus changes, resulting in a loss of resolution. In STEM images, horizontal disturbances will cause image flags, which can smear the edges and directly affect resolution. Any temperature drift outside the system specifications may cause loss of data. For cryo-TEM labs, humidity control is also critical.

When selecting an EM product, there are many elements to consider. System configuration, software applications, and services selected must all work together to achieve the groundbreaking data you require. The physical location and environment surrounding your system are fundamental to achieving your desired outcomes. Even slight variations can mean the difference of staying within, or straying from, ever-tightening system specifications.

With the Thermo Scientific Site Preparation Service portfolio, you will gain a competitive advantage by optimizing your system’s surroundings. Whether you are debating the placement of one specific system in your lab or developing a brand-new facility from the ground up, our environmental engineering experts will provide analysis and recommendations to minimize environmental interference and maximize system performance.

Key Features
