The Hitachi Tabletop Microscope is the perfect imaging platform for any Light Microscope lab needing higher resolution and deeper focus depth. Requiring no electron microscopical technical skills or sample preparation techniques, the TM-1000 can be used by anyone able to use a digital camera. It's that easy!


TM-1000 images show sample surface morphology in contrast due to different average atomic number composition within the sample. It provi- des a real alternative to optical microscopes, stereo microscopes and confocal laser scanning microscopes. It has applications for many sectors including life science, food, cosmetics, healthcare, pharmaceutical, textiles, materials science, semiconductor and education.
