FEI Tecnai 12 Spirit


Our newest instrument, a Tecnai Spirit is an easy-to-use TEM designed to provide high-contrast, high-resolution imaging and analysis in life science applications. Its unique BioTWIN lens is designed for optimal contrast and allows the observation of unstained material. Sophisticated automation allows you to concentrate on scientific challenges rather than the details of operating the instrument. A series of embedded side-mount and bottom-mount CCD cameras provide instant, high-quality digital results at the push of a button. We are currently acquiring 3D imaging software (Serial EM) that will automatically collect tomographic tilt series and reconstructs detailed 3D models of intricate biological structures.
