Analysis Requirements:
TEM samples can be powder/colloidal solutions for nanoparticles and the minimum amount should be 5mg/0.5ml. If samples are solid materials (ceramics/geological/biological materials) then samples should be prepared by the users, and at least samples should be processed for ultrasonic cutting/dimpling/Ion milling and/or ultramicrotomy.
