Electron Microscopy Platform

Fiocruz’s Network Technological Platforms
The FEI Tecnai G2 Spirit Biotwin Transmission Electron Microscope has a resolution of 0.34 nm and operates at a voltage of 20 kV to 120 kV, with options for tungsten (W) or lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) filament and magnification of up to 300,000x. Equipped with MegaView Olympus 2K and Eagle 4K CCD cameras, as well as FEI’s Tecnai Imaging & Analysis (TIA) image capture software. Enabled for analyzing the ultrastructure of samples in 2D. Also The JSM-5600 Scanning Electron Microscope is a conventional high and low vacuum microscope with tungsten (W) filament and equipped with secondary and backscattered electron detectors for topographic analysis of samples. The microscope has a resolution of 5 nm and an acceleration voltage of 0.5-30 kV.

This platform is located in FIOCRUZ – Pernambuco.
