In this series of mini-talks, Dr Walkiewicz will be describing sample preparation process and breaking it down into simple steps, solving common problems and looking at how to improve efficiency and efficacy.

In this second episode of the series, Dr Walkiewicz will be looking at dehydration of samples, why it is so important, why we dehydrate, do we need anything before dehydration, and means of tissue fixation.

Upcoming episodes

  • 10th October @11am BST CT 03 – Critical Point Drying – is it really so complex?
  • 24th October @11am BST CT 04 – Mounting samples – exposing the most relevant parts. Coating – why do we coat samples?
  • 7th November @11am BST CT 05 – Coating for SEM. What do we use for coating and when? Vacuum level, metal choice, thickness.

    In this series Dr Anna Walkiewicz, the Quorum Application Specialist, will talk about different processes within the sample preparation workflow and breaking them down into simple steps, solving common problems and looking at how to improve efficiency and efficacy.

    The first coffee talk, The Scary Vacuum, will be addressing issues regarding the vacuum: why do we need to consider if our samples are sensitive to the change of pressure and how they will behave in the vacuum environment.  Dr Anna Walkiewicz will be giving advice how to prepare samples in the correct way, so we see their natural appearance rather than an outcome of the pressure change modifying their morphology.
