Hitachi’s Dual-Mode Transmission Electron Microscope Now Compatible with an Easy-to-Install Tomography Solution Resulting from Tight Integration with the SerialEM Software and a Camera Manufactured by Advanced Microscopy Techniques


Clarksburg, Maryland, September 10, 2015—The Hitachi HT7700 Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) has two modes for tomography data acquisition: bio mode with a large Cs value, and high resolution mode with optimized point resolution, allowing HT7700 to serve both the Life Science and Materials Science communities. As the result of global collaboration between Hitachi High Technologies, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and the renowned TEM camera manufacturer Advanced Microscopy Techniques, Corp. (AMT) of Woburn, Massachusetts (, a convenient package for state-of-the-art, single or dual-axis tomography acquisition and extended image montaging is now available. Due to the tight integration, routines for alignment and calibration have been greatly simplified. This represents a typical example of Hitachi’s customer focus by simplifying operation and providing user friendliness in all areas of microscopy. The acquisition software, SerialEM, is supported by its author Dr. David Mastronarde at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the combined SerialEM/camera package is available through AMT.
