In the vast number of fields that make up life science, electron microscopy plays a key role for research, development, diagnosis, and investigation of many applications. These include the discovery of viruses, prevention/mitigation of infections, study of organelle structure, drug development, and food safety just to name a few. It is also heavily utilized in structural biology, microbiology, botany, pathology, pharmacology, and toxicology to investigate structures as well as functions and interactions. Hitachi High-Tech provides highly advanced instrumentation for life-science applications, such as TEM systems that can be used to investigate the structure of cells and proteins, SEM as well as FIB-SEM systems for a dive into three-dimensional internal structure, and AFM systems for analysis of soft biomaterials in atmospheric or liquid environments.
