1. Tabletop Microscope TM4000 Series
The tabletop microscope known as Miniscope is a scanning electron microscope (SEM), an instrument used in various fields including materials science and life science, that has been miniaturized to a size that can fit on a tabletop. Its widespread use is not only limited to research labs, but also extends to factory sites for managing production processes and quality control. The expanding user base and diversification of applications have generated a requirement to make the microscope easy to use with high throughput by any user. The latest models, the TM4000 and TM4000 Plus, streamline and simplify the entire process from sample observation to elemental analysis and analytical report generation. Utilizing an optical camera installed inside the sample chamber can capture samples during the vacuum pumping process to allow easy searching of an area of interest. Both models provide a reports creation function which makes reports from the captured SEM images in Microsoft* Word*, Excel*, or PowerPoint* format. The size and weight are still less than previous models even when the optional optical camera and motor drive are installed, allowing them to be used in even more locations and applications.
