Dear list,

The University of California, Davis, is exploring the possibility of selling its aberration corrected JEOL2100F due to the high cost of the service contract, coupled to the lack of use of the instrument. The microscope has an ultra-high resolution pole piece, scanning coils and detectors for STEM. The microscope is 5 years old, is performing beyond specifications (0.76A resolution), and has always been under service contract. 

The original cost of the instrument was ~1.7MDls, but the Department is willing to take whatever best offer it gets. If anyone knows of someone looking for a high-end microscope at a price low enough to be used to screen negatively stained specimens, the information will be greatly appreciated.

You can see some pictures (dark field) from this microscope here:

Lastly, my sincerest apologies for spamming everyone in the list.
