Diatome Ltd manufactures diamond knives for Ultramicrotomy.
In Biology the Ultramicrotomy is a recognized technique for achieving ultrathin sections for Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM).
In Materials Research sections of all kinds of polymers and metals, but also brittle materials such as ceramics, semiconductors, crystals, etc, are generated.
Besides the making of sections of high quality, Ultramicrotomy also serves for preparing extremely smooth surfaces of a great variety of biological and Materials Research samples.
For example absolutely smooth surfaces for EBSD investigation are achieved.
Kindly visit our booth no. 3 and discuss your possible Ultramicrotomy applications. Mr H. Gnaegi is at disposal for any information you might require.
