At Bramchem Testing Lab, we employ several microscopy techniques.

Optical microscopy

Optical microscopy uses visible light and a system of lenses to magnify images of small samples with 10-100x magnification

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM)

Transmission electron microscopy is a technique to observe the features of small specimens. It uses an accelerated beam of electrons through thin specimen to observe biological structures up to 2 million times.

scanning electron microscopy (sem)

Scanning electron microscopy is a type of electron microscopy that scans the surface of a sample with a focused beam of electrons to produce surface images. The electrons interact with the sample to produce signals that contain information about the surface topography and composition of the sample.
