Biomedical research using energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy
Webinar: Watch on demand
In this webcast, the speakers will focus on the biomedical applications of EDS. In this illustration of EDS capability, they will discuss how it can be used to identify the composition of wear particles from failed hip implants and thus determine which part of the implant they originated from.
They will also describe case studies where EDS has been used for medical diagnostics. Finally, they will show how EDS can be used to conduct colour electron microscopy, providing imaging information that facilitates the identification of cells and tissues within hydroxyapatite implants and how the composition of the implant changes during degradation.
You will learn:
- What information EDS can supply about biomaterials or biomedical applications
- How EDS can be used in diagnostic studies
- Which range of techniques are available with EDS
