Thermo Scientific Axia ChemiSEM
Easy-to-use SEM with live EDS quantitative elemental mapping
The Axia ChemiSEM is designed to make SEM more accessible and easier to use, with convenient automated features.
Unlike traditional SEMs, it collects EDS data continuously in the background. Unique algorithms process SEM and EDS signals simultaneously, so you can view the morphology and quantitative elemental composition of a sample together, in real time.
- Live quantitative elemental mapping – Always-on EDS means you can view elemental information at any time without switching techniques.
- Easy to get started – The platform is always ready to image. Helpful guidance, auto-alignment and automated features enable you to focus on your data, not on operating the instrument.
- Large, flexible chamber – For samples up 10kg, with x-y movement, and fully opening door for awkward samples.
- Excellent imaging performance – For a wide range of applications, including insulating samples with Low Vac operation and advanced beam scanning for high-fidelity imaging.
- Software for diverse applications – Handle advanced applications with system automation options such as Thermo Scientific Maps, and customise workflow development with AutoScript.
- Easy maintenance – Source exchange can be completed easily by users of any experience level. Straightforward design gives you high up-time, with rapid service when attention is needed.

EDS data is collected continuously and can be view live at any time. Using colour to visualise elemental quantification, you can easily gain new insights into your sample. This reveals defects and imperfections that may otherwise go unnoticed. EDS is always on, so you don’t need to switch between techniques. It’s also quicker – compared to traditional EDS and SEM techniques, you can access elemental information 2-4 times faster.
Study samples in-situ at high temperatures, to see how they react in real-world conditions. Observe the behavior of materials as they re-crystallise, melt, deform or react in the presence of heat
Characterise powders and particles in nanomaterials research and quality control, with the nanometre-scale resolution and superior imaging of electron microscopy.
Cathodoluminescence (CL) analyses the emission of light from a material when it’s excited by an electron beam. The signal is captured by a specialized CL detector, and to gain information about composition, crystal defects and photonic properties.
