Sample preparation

Due to the fact that incident electrons need to penetrate through the sample, so that transmitted electron signal would be collected for imaging, the sample thickness needs to be limited (e.g. 50 to 250 nm for biological samples). Therefore specified sample preparation is necessary, see support equipment for more information.
