FEI Tecnai 12 Transmission electron microscope
The Tecnai 12 is an advanced transmission electron microscope with accelerating voltages from 20-120kV. It offers magnification ranges from 120X to 300,000X. The microscope has a lens design to optimise low contrast imaging for biological specimens. It has a cryo stage for viewing frozen specimens. The staff keeps it in optimal working condition so the user does not have to do any aligning.
The Tecnai 12 has two Gatan digital cameras installed. One camera is a bottom mount Ultrascan 1000 2k x 2k CCD camera. The other is a side mount Rio 9 3k x 3k CMOS camera.
