Take a closer look at research!

The School of Oral and Dental Sciences purchases a new FEI Phenom desktop scanning electron microscope.

Researchers at the School of Oral and Dental Sciences are the proud owners of a new FEI Phenom desktop scanning electron microscope (SEM). This cutting edge instrument will enable students and staff to take high-resolution images of all sorts of specimens, from bacteria to biomaterials, and from enamel to implants.

It operates quickly and efficiently, allowing the user to obtain images within a minute of loading the specimen, and has the added bonus of auto-focus and auto-contrast, meaning that it will be ideal for undergraduate projects as well as postgraduate research.

We were delighted to pass our old SEM on to Cardiff Dental School, who will use it as spare parts for one of their own machines.
