This transmission electron microscope is typically operated at 120 kV (can easily be aligned at 60, 80, and 100kV if needed) and can image samples at both room and cryo temperatures. The electron source is provided by a Lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) crystal or a Tungsten (W) filament (currently a LaB6 is mounted). It offers high performance, versatility, high productivity and ease of operation. The fully motorized eucentric goniometer stage (CompuStage®) can be tilted to ±80°. The unit is also equipped with a high-resolution, high-contrast, thermoelectrically (TE) cooled Gatan Orius® 1000 dual-scan CCD camera. It acquires 4008×2672 digital images, using Digital Micrograph(DM) software.
