Where surface roughness studies are necessary, these spherical particles, lying in the range of 100-500 nm, are invaluable. Shadows of these particles accurately calibrate every area being examined. Also, the shadows may be used to calculate elevations and depressions. Complete instructions for use included.
Crystals of bovine liver catalase are recommended as an internal standard of length in the electron microscope. Absolute sizes in the magnification range of 10,000 X to 150,000 X may be determined with an accuracy of +/- 2.5% and relative sizes with an accuracy of +/- 1.5%. Based on experimental data, the principal catalase lattice spacing is 172 +/- 4 Angstroms. Lattice lines separated by half this distance are used in actual size determinations. Crystals are suspended in antibacterial solution. Sealed in 10 ml glass vial.
A 1500 mesh, 0.00015" thick nickel screen is precisely mounted within a 3.0 mm copper athene-type, double grid. The double grid is firmly secured to provide a sturdy specimen to last indefinitely. The very accurate spacings may be used to check magnification. The fine wire projections aid in the measurement of field distortions. One bar and one space measures 16.94 µm.
If your instrument can resolve the tetrad of this protein molecule it has better than 12.5 Angstroms resolution. Supplied as a pure suspension dispersed upon a formvar substrate.
A high resolution test specimen consisting of a graphitized ISAF carbon black dispersed on "lacey" carbon film supported by a 200 mesh grid. The carbon black chains bridge openings in the film so there is no substrate to interfere with resolution tests. Imaging of the 3.4 Angstrom lattice spacing of the carbon, along with the curved regions and dislocations, permit magnification calibration and check the performance of high resolution electron microscopes.
