Hitachi H-7500 Transmission Electron Microscope

Hitachi

The Hitachi H-7500 transmission electron microscope is an instrument suitable for high magnification examination of biological tissues in research. The column design of this particular TEM allows users to visualize samples at magnifications ranging from very low (700x) to very high (200,000x) while maintaining high resolution, a large field of view (160mm) and high contrast. The status of the electron microscope is displayed graphically on a dedicated computer, which shows the viewing and microscope parameters and allows the user to customize these conditions to suit their needs. An advanced vacuum system eliminates the need for a cold finger.

Key features include:

  • Easy visualization of the TEM environment through graphic interface
  • Poiont-to-point resolution of 0.36nm (under ideal conditions)
  • 80kV accelerating voltage
  • Focusing wobbler and focus loupe tool
  • High contrast viewing
  • Easy to use, well marked controls
  • Air table mounted to reduce vibration
Illumination:
  • long life tungsten hairpin filament
Camera:
  • Gatan, Inc. US1000 high resolution (2k x2k) digital camera
Acquisition Software:
  • Digital Micrograph by Gatan, Inc., v1.82.366
  • 8- or 16-bit resolution capabilities
