Transmission Electron Microscope - Tecnai G2 Spirit BioTWIN


The Tecnai G2 Spirit BioTWIN is a fully digital transmission electron microscope suited for general research in cell biology, structural biology, and nanotechnology. It can provide high resolution, 2D and 3D imaging using tomography for information on cells and organelles. The Tecnai Spirit is cryo capable allowing sample observation at liquid nitrogen temperature. This microscope is equipped with a GATAN digital image capturing system which operates in TEM mode (BioTWIN lens for high resolution and contrast with voltages up to 120kV; low dose capabilities, diffraction mode, cryo TEM), also in Scanning-TEM mode (dark-field and EDX detectors, 3D tomography).
