airSEMa�? offers a paradigm shiftA�with regards to sample preparation for electron imaging.
Beyond sidestepping almost all sample preparation, in itself rendering the airSEMa�? a highly convenient electron microscope, the two major advantages offered are:
Solid state samples can be directly imaged without coating, which, in many cases, can obscure critical information.
Life Sciences: Current preparation procedures for vacuum SEM have severalA�known drawbacks, all of which are eliminated when using the airSEMi??i??i??A�platform:
A comparison ofA�sample preparation steps for tissue slices for both vacuum SEM andA�airSEMa�? is presented:
airSEMi??i??i?? surpasses the steps of fixation, dehydration, drying or coating which in many cases alter the chemistry of the sample and its structure and may introduce artifacts
