Automation and Ease of Use
The Talos L120C TEM features easy-to-use software, operating on Windows® 7, which allows for switching between TEM and STEM mode quickly. The Talos L120C TEM offers a high level of automation, allowing complete digital control over multiple microscope components, including the electron gun, optical elements, vacuum system, and stage. Additionally, the user interface allows for smart presets to save multiple operational conditions across many different applications.
Providing a single software solution, the modular MAPS software platform allows for automated and unattended-large area acquisition at multiple scales. MAPS allows for image and data transfer between multiple imaging platforms, such as TEM, SEM, SDB, and Light Microscopes. The Talos L120C TEM user is able to quickly and easily correlate data from multiple imaging platforms, ready for input into the optional Amira software for advanced visualization and analysis.
An improved vacuum system reduces vacuum recovery after airlock procedure to less than one minute, resulting in quick sample exchange. This new vacuum system is also more robust, providing an optimal contamination-free environment with a contamination rate of ≤ 1·104 nm3 per minute. Integrated application software allows for observation of cryo specimens with minimal ice growth, measured at less than 0.7 nm per hour.
