Tecnai™ Spirit TEM

Tecnai™ Spirit TEM
Meeting the Needs of Life Science Researchers
Today, life science research in the fields of cell biology and structural
biology focuses increasingly on understanding interactive biological
processes, pathways, and structures at the macromolecular scale.
Transmission Electron Microcopy (TEM) alone combines the power
to resolve these structures with the ability to visualize them in their
functional, three dimensional context and native, fully hydrated state.
The Tecnai Spirit TEM – built on more than 50 years’ experience
in life science imaging – features optical systems specifically
designed to deliver both the deep subnanometer resolution and
high contrast, high-quality imaging required to explore the fine
detail of biological structures.
Extensive automation at all levels makes operation fast, easy, and
accessible, allowing you to concentrate on the science rather than
the operation of the microscope.
The Xplore3D™ software simplifies three dimensional imaging
with electron tomography, streamlining the entire process from
data acquisition through reconstruction and visualization.
State of the art cryogenic sample handling permits observations of
vitrified samples without the potential artifact and structural disruption
caused by harsh chemical and physical preparations.
Cells– Every cell is a fascinating, complex biological factory requiring
the precise integration and control of myriad molecular machines
almost too numerous and too varied to image. It is Tecnai Spirit TEM’s
ability to explore the full range of this complexity, from the molecular
to the cellular scale, that makes it an indispensible tool for fundamental
research in structural and cellular biology.
Tissues– Observations of tissues, the next level up the organizational
hierarchy, often add the practical requirements of clinical and diagnostic
medicine to the list of needed capabilities. The Tecnai’s easy operation
and high quality imaging ensure fast, accurate diagnoses.
Pharmaceuticals– The Tecnai Spirit TEM’s ability to observe biological
systems in a fully functional context permits powerful visualization of
the effects of pharmaceutical agents on their biological targets.
