Axia ChemiSEM

Even though scanning electron microscopy (SEM) has made tremendous advances, it can be considered by new users to be a complicated technique. Sample preparation, alignments, cost of ownership, and difficulties with analytical techniques prevent widespread adoption. We set out to resolve these challenges to make a truly accessible SEM without compromising on flexibility.

Our goal was to make microscopy an easy and enjoyable experience in which you should not have to fight the microscope to obtain quality data. The result is the Thermo Scientific Axia ChemiSEM Scanning Electron Microscope, a system in which obtaining SEM-EDS data is no longer a chore. EDS is no longer just an afterthought—chemical data and imaging have now become one.

Key Benefits

  • Flexible, easy to use, and offers instantaneous, quantitative elemental analysis.
  • Update your Analytical workflow with fully integrated, cutting-edge Thermo Scientific ChemiSEM technology that provides characterization in half the time.
  • Flexible sample loading.
  • Diverse application software.
  • Easy to get started.
  • Excellent imaging performance.
  • Easy maintenance.

The Axia ChemiSEM is unlike traditional SEMs in that it always collects EDS data in the background. It uses unique algorithms to process the SEM and EDS signals simultaneously, allowing it to display the morphology and quantitative elemental makeup of a sample together, in real-time. It constantly processes EDS data in the background, giving you live updates on elemental data, as it is acquired. Elements found in your sample can be toggled on and off, allowing you to isolate areas of interest.

This innovative system features a superior user experience enhanced by automation, such as SmartAlign technology for alignment-free operation, newly developed automatic functions, and live quantitative EDS mapping. This always-on processing makes analysis twice as fast, compared to traditional methods. The Axia ChemiSEM Scanning Electron Microscope puts SEM/EDS analysis within reach of a wider scientific audience, speeds up your workflow, and saves time on training.
