Electron microprobe

a technique of elemental analysis in the electron microscope based on spectral analysis of the scattered x-ray emission from the specimen induced by the electron beam. Using this technique it is possible to obtain quantitative data on, for example: the calcium concentration in different parts of a cell, but it is necessary to use ultra thin frozen sections.
