Working with high energy electrons (up to 300 kV in current commercial systems) means a large amount of X-Rays are generated inside the microscope: manufacturers are well aware of the potential risks and they take the utmost care to make sure you can operate the electron microscope without being harmed by lethal radiation.
What about DENSsolutions’ holders then? We would like to share our tests results to show we take exactly the same precautions as the original manufacturers.
In this case we performed the tests with one of the TEM providers, with OEM operators and approved measuring devices. The standard protocol was used (beam current equal to >75 nA)
Maximum allowed radiation level: 1000 nS/h
Wildfire DT/Lightning: 235 nS/h Climate/Stream: 223 nS/h
