Have your rotten food or dead bugs scanned with a benchtop SEM for free!

The ASPEX Corporation, a leader in scanning electron microscopes and microanalysis software, is offering a free benchtop SEM scan of anything you can think to send them! Past submissions have included mold, cat hair, a penny and an assortment of other random objects. This is a unique opportunity for people in the industry or for anyone interested in science in general. Share with your colleagues or engage your kids or students in science by letting ASPEX take a picture of your stuff under a high powered microscope. Check out the ASPEX site to view past scans and for instructions on where to send your samples. Once ASPEX receives your items they will scan them and post them on their website for everyone to see. (You also have the option to have your scan results sent to you privately). Get creative and have fun!
