Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometry (EDS) for Biology

Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometry (EDS) opens new dimensions for biological electron microscopy, enabling clearer ultrastructural imaging by adding compositional information.

From the detector of native, biological elements in cryo-specimens through to tissues and organisms contaminated with heavy metals, EDS can help you with:

    • Low kV analysis for high-resolution data (<2kV)
    • Detection of light elements in biological samples (incl. nitrogen) using windowless detectors
    • Sensitivity for low dose conditions and cryo-EM
    • Fast and accurate compositional analysis with a large area detector
    • Easy to interpret analytical data with automatic identification of elements
