The FEI Tecnai 12 is a 120kV TEM fitted with a LaB6 filament and a high resolution TWIN lens configuration. It is an excellent TEM for the examination of samples at room-temperature or under cryo conditions. It is currently fitted with a 4k x 4k lens coupled CCD Camera from Direct Electron (LC-1100). The installed image acquisition software SerialEM from David Mastronarde (University Boulder, USA) allows, beside standard 2D imaging, the collection of tilt-series for electron tomography under low dose condition as well as under standard imaging conditions.
