Scientific Illustrations

Imaging Resource creates images with Scanning Electron Microscopy. These black and white micrographs can be refined and colorized to become striking scientific illustrations. The aim is to produce mesmerizing images that can be used for education, product development, marketing and even art exhibitions.

Microanalysis Service

We also offer advanced microanalysis services of everything from machine components, foodstuff, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, packaging material to nanostructured surfaces.
Scanning Electron Microscopy, as well as other specialized microscopy techniques, is used to increase the knowledge about the properties of your material.
We handle projects in many industrial and R&D areas: Life Science, engineering, packaging, material science or product development in general.

Your Own Microanalysis Lab

Do you sometimes wish that you had access to a microanalysis laboratory?
There is no need to build your own lab facility. We  provide you with the necessary Imaging Resources based on Electron Microscopy and other specialized microscopy. Microanalysis in high magnification gives you valuable information about surface features, internal microstructures,  composition or homogeneity.


We have access to some of the most advanced microscopes as well as fast routine instrument. This enables us to study your samples with extreme accuracy or deliver prompt analysis results.

A selection of investigations that can be performed with Scanning Electron Microscopy

  • Surface structure
  • Cross Sections
  • Particle characterisation

Surface Structure of Tablet

Microstructure of coating layer and tablet core, X300.

Cross Section of Medical Catheter

This medical device was cryo fractured to minimize plastic deformation, X75.

Inorganic Crystalline Material

Characteristic rod shaped crystals, X1000.

From Science to Marketing

Once a thorough investigation of your sample has been made it’s time to communicate your findings. Don’t miss the chance to create eye-catching images that can be used in the entire chain from research to marketing.

By refining and colorizing the microscope images we create scientific illustrations suited for web pages, posters, exhibitions or internal company presentations.

Lung Epithelial

Cillated lung cells, X5000.

Pseudo Coloured Image

Cillated lung cells, X5000.

Scientific Visualization

Scientific visualization can be used in everything from research to marketing. When the black and white microsgraphs are refined and colorized they become eye-catching illustrations for web pages, exhibitions, posters or other printed media.


Scientific Illustrations of food stuff from selected gourmet producers from around the world. The images were created with an electron microscope in collaboration with Fool and Per-Anders Jorgensen, an internationally renowned photographer who has food, gourmet cooking and portraying chefs as his speciality.
