Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer ServicesÂ has selected the LVEM5 Benchtop electron microscope to add to its research instrumentation. The microscope was installed in theÂ Department of Plant Industry
As a regulatory agency of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the Division of Plant Industry works to detect, intercept and control plant and honey bee pests that threaten Floridaâs native and commercially grown plants and agricultural resources. The LVEM5 microscope will be an invaluable asset in these efforts.
The LVEM5 is the only desktop TEM on the market. The LVEM5 is also capable of preforming electron diffraction.Â The LVEM5 is capable of 1.2nm resolution in TEM mode.
The LVEM5 benefits from a 5kv electron source that means that you can visualize light weight materials such as biological tissue without the need for heavy metal stains. This is a huge advantage for users who want to get a greater understanding of their materials, and not their stain.
