About Us

Introduction and History

Dear Valued Customer,

On behalf of myself and the entire team at Electron Microscopy Sciences, let me say that it is our honor and privilege to provide you with this website – the most comprehensive source of products for all fields of microscopy and general laboratory research available. As we come upon our 45th year in the industry, we truly believe the effort we put into our website, in addition to our other endeavors (catalog, bulletins, emails, post cards) proves to be a valuable resource for you, our customer, who deserves the very best.

A lot has happened over the last few years. New technological achievements are here (EMS Cryo-Sem Preparation System, Graphene – the strongest material ever measured, LatticeAx Cleaving Systems, Nightsea Fluorescence Viewing Systems and the EMS Freeze Substitution Kit to name a few). The way we communicate using new media continues to evolve as well (EMS is now on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube). Even though all of these changes have taken place, one thing remains the same – our commitment to manufacturing and distributing the highest quality chemicals, supplies, equipment and accessories available to the Microscopy and Histology community today. In fact, our team is working harder than ever to provide you with friendly service, competitive pricing, accurate technical support and swift delivery.

We know many of our customers look forward to visiting our website to learn about exciting new products on the market. We carefully select these products, offering only those that meet our high standards before we present them to you. Highlights of new products include:antigen retrieval, the addition of over 1500 new thicknesses for Formvar and Carbon Support Film Grids, products available exclusively from Electron Microscopy Sciences: Nightsea; Lynx II Tissue Processor; Cryo Workstation; FIRM; EMS–UAR, EMS Cryo-Sem Preparation System and much more.

For those new to our website, you will find the products organized in sections to enhance your experience. There are entire sections devoted to particular fields, such as Histology or Materials Sciences, to help researchers quickly narrow their focus on products and equipment appropriate for their needs. We hope you will discover exciting products that will benefit your research. Keep in mind, this is not merely a list of available products, it's an educational resource. You will find research citations and technical data alongside our products so you can learn how to take full advantage of the products you receive from us. There is an index of this information for your convenience. There is also a completely updated listing of our Technical Data Sheets, as well as Material Safety Data Sheets which we keep up to date as a courtesy to our customers who find them invaluable. We invite you to order our latest catalog as another resource for this information. We are pleased to be of service and hope you will join our mailing list so we may continue to send you additional updates throughout the year.

It is with great pleasure we continue to offer to you our outstanding selection of Chemicals for Electron Microscopy, Light Microscopy and Histology; the industry-leading line of Aurion ImmunoGold Reagents; the highest quality, most precise sectioning and incomparable durability DiATOME Diamond Knives line, our superb line of EMS Sputter and Carbon Coaters, world-renowned Technovit® embedding resins, and the list goes on. Most of these lines have been enhanced with new options, so it's worth taking a look.

We hope our website exceeds your expectations and we look forward to working with you. Please contact our customer service and technical departments if we can help discuss any of these products with you in further detail regarding your particular application. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. It's how we continue to grow. We achieve success if you do.
