Company offering free SEM samples
free_sem_scan.jpg

Wondering what something you own would look like under a scanning electron microscope, but don’t happen to have one in your garage? Well, then you might be interested in this intriguing offer from ASPEX: a complimentary SEM scan of your favorite object!

This looks like a really awesome service, however I am a bit suspicious- their sample photos are all high quality stock images, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to specify the orientation of the scan. Anyone want to try it out? Be sure to let us know your results!

[Thanks, Matt!]

  1. I’m not sure what the black and white photos are all about, but that cat definitely is composed of a lot of moldy cheese.

    :-D

  2. …is anyone else concerned with the idea of someone packaging their cat, and shipping it to some potentially seedy company?

    I would NOT like to be the chap who has to operate the microscope that this particular kitty is under.

  3. once the chamber is pumped down the kitty gets very very quite. Who I’d hate to be is the person who opens the box once the kitty is returned.
