FEI Tecnai 12

In combination with the Bioscan camera, the T12 is a microscope aimed at biological research. However, it is used for a wide range of tasks such as investigations on not only biological samples but also polymers, thin films, fibers, ceramics, powders, single crystals and can also be used for acquisition of 3D tomography tilt series and microanalysis using EDXS.
