Kodak® Carestream® electron microscope films are designed to offer high image quality for a wide range of transmission electron micrography (TEM) and electron diffraction studies. Kodak/Carestream EM film (Type 4489) provides exceptional dimensional stability, and has a slow-medium very fine grain emulsion suited to routine applications. Kodak/Carestream electron image film (Type SO-163) offers broad exposure and development ranges, covering a wide range of applications, from very short exposures (for high speed imaging) to long exposures (for improved signal-to-noise ratios in high resolution microscopy).
Emulsions are coated onto a 0.17mm (0.007") thick polyester base. Full processing instructions are supplied. Films should be handled in the darkroom under red or brown safelight conditions. An active developer such as Kodak D-19 (AGP9101A) is generally recommended, and speed and contrast characteristics can be varied by altering the development time or developer formulation.
Supplied in boxes of 100 sheets or multipacks of 250 sheets.
