Abstract : We solicited and received three price quotations for a research-grade transmission electron microscope: FEI, Inc., $593,947; JOEL USA, Inc., $510,995; and Hitachi High Technologies America, Inc., $505,769. We chose to purchase the Hitachi model HT7700 Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM). Delivery and installation were completed in December, 2014. The new TEM joins and complements an existing microscopic imaging facility on the second floor of the Pharmacy Addition at Xavier University that already includes two scanning electron microscopes. The new TEM is now in use. Xavier University has formally pledged to provide funds for the routine maintenance of the TEM after the end of DoD support.
