LVEM5 Desktop TEM Used by Students at Lehigh University to Image Phages Undergraduate biology students at Lehigh University are using the LVEM5 to evaluate bacteriophages obtained from local soil samples. Starting with a tube of dirt collected from a location of their choice, each student underwent the process of isolating and purifying their bacteriophages from plaques on bacterial lawns. Plaques were selected…
LVEM5 Desktop TEM used to image Dendrimers LVEM5 used for Dendrimer Imaging Applications in drug delivery University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI)
There is a rather informative entry on Wikipedia (Click Here) detailing the Low Voltage Electron Microscopy (LVEM) technique. The entry goes through the advantages and limitations of the technique. The most notable advantages of LVEM are increased contrast, the elimination of the heavy metal staining procedure, and the ability to…
We are excited to announce that a LVEM5 benchtop electron microscope, with TEM SEM and STEM imaging modes, has recently been installed at the University of Manchester in the UK. Dr. Paul O’Brien’s Research group will be using the LVEM5 to enhance their research of various nanomaterials.
We have recently added 2 new sections to our website. Installations We have added a google map that illustrates where we currently have users of the LVEM5 benchtop electron microscope. Click Here
Welcome to the Delong America Blog where you will find the most up to date information about the LVEM5 benchtop electron microscope. Here we will post exciting new applications for the LVEM5 as well as stories from users.
LVEM5 Installed at Siluria Technologies to Develop a Method to Produce Ethylene from Natural Gas Siluria Technologies, a venture backed start-up company located in San Francisco, has purchased a LVEM5 Benchtop TEM (with SEM and STEM modes) to complement its array of high throughput based synthesis tools and high throughput heterogeneous catalysis reactor tools. Siluria will be using the LVEM5 to help invent and optimize…
The LVEM5 will be used by the AFRL HE at WPAFB to visualize nanoparticles of various scales in tissue and determine where the nanoparticles sequester in tissue sections.
The University of Talca has embarked on a research focus in materials characterization relevant to biomedical studies. The university has selected the LVEM5 benchtop electron microscope (transmission, scanning and scanning transmission modes) as a pivotal technology to explore low voltage applications within this research portfolio.
The LVEM5 will be used by the NRCC-BRI for the characterization of NCC (nano-crystalline cellulose) fibers, NCC-based novel materials and a variety of nano-filaments and nanoparticles.
