Hitachi High Technologies America to Exhibit Groundbreaking Tabletop Microscope at WIRED’s NextFest

PLEASANTON, CA | Posted on September 12th, 2007

Hitachi High Technologies America, Inc. today announced that the company will exhibit the new TM-1000 Tabletop Microscope at the fourth annual WIRED NextFest™ 2007 event. The TM-1000 will be but one of the many innovative products featured in the Hitachi Pavilion in the Los Angeles County Convention Center from September 13 - 16, 2007.

"WIRED NextFest 2007 is the ideal venue for the TM-1000 tabletop microscope," said Robert Gordon, Vice President and General Manager of Hitachi High Technologies America, Nanotechnology Systems Division. "Hitachi High Technologies America has been engaged in nanotech outreach to educate youth and reeducate the workforce using the TM-1000 at institutions such as University of California - Berkeley, Duke, Cornell, the University of Wyoming, USC, LSU and Stanford University. We are excited to share this technology with the students and teachers in the Los Angeles area as well as the visionaries and innovators attending the event."

The TM-1000 Tabletop Microscope is set to transform the field of basic microscopy. The system utilizes scanning electron microscope (SEM) technology. It is easy to use while retaining powerful imaging capabilities. This novel instrument gives a performance in excess of an ordinary optical microscope. Operation of the TM-1000 requires no special sample preparation for hydrated, oily or non-conducting samples and is as easy to use as a digital camera.

The TM-1000 accepts samples up to 70 mm in diameter and 20 mm thickness. It is equipped with auto-focus, auto-brightness and auto-contrast functions and features a magnification range of 20 - 10,000x using standard imaging and up to 40,000x using digital zoom capabilities. All images are recorded digitally on a computer for easy access. The extensive functionality of this simple-to-use microscope enables even non-specialists to effortlessly obtain images of outstanding quality.

It has applications for many sectors including life science, food, cosmetics, healthcare, pharmaceutical, textiles, materials science, semiconductor and education.
