Scanning Electron Microscope
The Hitachi TM1000 Tabletop Microscope is an imaging platform which provides high resolution and deep focus depth for various types of small samples. It requires no electron microscopical technical skills or sample preparation techniques; thus making it very user friendly.
TM-1000 images show sample surface morphology in contrast due to different average atomic number composition within the sample. It provides a good alternative to optical microscopes, stereo microscopes and confocal laser scanning microscopes.
The instrument is fitted with the Energy Dispersive X-Ray Microanalysis (SWIFT ED from Oxford Instruments). SwiftED-TM provides elemental analysis (Sodium to Uranium) of specimens.
