Extremely smooth sample surfaces and Best possible structure preservation
The high quality Diatome diamond knives are not just perfect for producing ultrathin and semi-thin sections, but also for surfacing sectioning of all kinds of biological and industrial specimens
Instead of a section as for TEM, the specimen surface is investigated using AFM. In order to achieve the best results for AFM investigation, only the highest quality diamond knives should be used.
Diatome ultra AFM and cryo AFM knives are specially tested to ensure that they meet the increased quality requirements of AFM investigation. They produce extremely smooth sample surfaces and guarantee the best possible structure preservation.
