TM Series Tabletop Microscopes: Creating a New Market, Initiatives for Social Responsibility

—Advancing Electron Microscopes with Improved Usability and Accessibility—

Highlight

RELEASED in 2005, the TM series of tabletop electron microscopes manufactured and marketed by Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation are designed to combine the resolution of an electron microscope with the ease-of-use of an optical microscope. Since the TM series models have few installation environment restrictions and are easy to handle they are in widespread use among new electron microscope users such as private-sector companies, universities, government offices, and science museums. Sales have exceeded 3,300 units (as of January 2016).
