Electron microscope is a type of microscope that uses a beam of electrons to create an image of the specimen under analysis. It has various advantages over light microscopes, as the electron microscopes offer higher resolutions and greater magnifying power. The types of electron microscopes include W-SEM, FIB-SEM, FEG-SEM, and TEM. North America is the most dominant region in the global electron microscopy sample preparation market, occupying a market share of 40% in 2014. Applications of electron microscopy comprise two major segments, namely life sciences and material sciences.

Sample preparation is a very crucial step when it comes to the examination of samples in the electron microscope. The technique for sample preparation depends upon varied samples, namely, biological sample and material sample. Material sampling is relatively easy as compared to biological sampling, as this process is considered to be user-friendly and can be successfully carried out by the user with some technical guidance.

There are various methods of sample preparation, such as cutting and slicing, fixation, embedding, coating, and immunogold labeling. Cutting and slicing is considered as the most popular method of sample preparation. Various fixation methods for sample preparation are chemical fixation, critical point drying and cryofixation.

Increasing life science applications of electron microscopy and R&D expenditure are considered as the major driving factors influencing the growth of the electron microscopy & sample preparation market.

Technological advancements in workstations, global alliances among leading research institutes to boost drug discovery, and recent advancements made in the field of analytical instruments are the additional factors propelling the growth of the electron microscopy & sample preparation market. However, difficulty in developing one-size-fits-all kits and high costs of workstations act as major market restraints hindering its market growth.

Key players in the global electron microscopy & sample preparation market are Danher Corporation (U.S.), Roche Holdings (Switzerland), Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., (U.S.), Sigma Aldrich Corp (U.S.), Bio Rad Laboratories (U.S.), Bruker Corporation (U.S.), Danaher Corporation (U.S.), Asylum Research (U.S.), Carl Zeiss Ag (Germany), FEI Co. (U.S.), Danish Micro Engineering (Denmark), Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation (Japan), Jeol Ltd. (Japan), Nikon Corporation (Japan), Olympus Corporation (Japan), and others.
