We are in the market to purchase a new TEM.   Our old Hitachi instrument is 31 years old and is getting tired.   The use for transmission em in pathology has somewhat diminished in our hospital environment.   We still however use TEM routinely on all renal biopsies and nerve biopsies.   Has anyone priced TEM scopes for pathology usage lately.   In the past there have not been many options for a TEM that was for pathology usage verses one for research.   Can anyone steer me in the right direction.  Of course cost has become a major issue also so we are trying to make the best choice for our usage.
