This informative article summarizes general decontamination methods and recommendations without being meant to replace a scientists’ expertise nor medical or professional advice. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/how-to-sanitize-a-microscope/ Fri, 03 Apr 2020 09:20:00 +0000 Dr. Christoph Greb https://www.leica-microsystems.com/18249 EM Sample Preparation Removal of Surface Layers - Sample Preparation for SEM and TEM Application Note for Leica EM RES102 - Sometimes it is necessary to remove surface layers to gain access to the real surface structure. That can be a native oxide, or layers coming from the preparation process itself, like re-deposition. Depending on the layers thickness and the energy used for the cleaning process, it takes between a few seconds and half an hour. The energy depends on the milling rate of the material. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/removal-of-surface-layers-sample-preparation-for-sem-and-tem/ Wed, 11 Jan 2017 10:10:00 +0000 PhD Wolfgang Grünewald https://www.leica-microsystems.com/14386 EM Sample Preparation How to Clean a Coater Coating of samples is required in the field of electron microscopy to enable or improve the imaging of samples. Compared to the traditional coater design, all parts of a Leica EM ACE Coater can be individually removed and cleaned or, if special cleanliness is needed, even exchanged for spare parts. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/how-to-clean-a-coater/ Thu, 16 Oct 2014 16:24:00 +0000 Gisela Höflinger https://www.leica-microsystems.com/6474 Basics in Microscopy How to Clean Microscope Optics Clean microscope optics are essential for obtaining good microscope images. If they are dirty, the microscope should be cleaned to avoid a loss of quality. If you decide to do this yourself, you should be extremely careful not to damage the sensitive microscope optics. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/how-to-clean-microscope-optics/ Sun, 08 Jul 2012 22:00:00 +0000 Wymke Ockenga
