The Hitachi H-7650 is a 120kV Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) that was installed at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência in 2010. The Hitachi H-7650 was especially designed for biological TEM processed specimens and is capable of magnifications as high as 600,000x and is equipped with a XR41M mid mount AMT digital camera for data acquisition. The microscope is housed in a dedicated room with temperature and humidity control.
This TEM provides essential features like auto-focus and auto-tilt (+/-60°) that allow you to observe 3D structures of your sample by TEM tomography. A rotation holder with (+/-15°) axial tilt is also available for this microscope.
Being such a sensitive piece of equipment, the TEM needs special training that can be provided by one of the technicians in the IGC Electron Microscopy Facility.
To book this equipment, you can do it here. Booking slots are limited to 3 hrs for regular data acquisition during normal facility operation which is from 09:30 - 17:30. If you require longer periods of time on the microscope this can be arranged in advance with the facility staff.
If you have further questions please contact one of the technicians in the IGC Electron Microscopy Facility.
