The Phillips 208S is a 100kv transmission electron microscope with excellent contrast and resolution with properly prepared specimens. The instrument, besides producing data-rich film output, is also coupled to AMT xr611 camera that permits high-resolution digital imaging.
The core provides technical help for the use of the microscope (inserting and withdrawing specimens, processing any EM negatives). Thus, usage of this instrument is always implemented with assistance by authorized personnel (Jackie Sisco or Ricardo Zerda). The fee is $20/hour with technical assistance. EM negative usage will be charged separately depending on the level of consumption.
