LOT-Quantum Design Group announce European representation of TEM Cameras from Direct Electron

Direct Electron Cameras for TEM experiments

The TEM cameras from Direct Electron (DE) offer unparalleled flexibility. From biological cryogenic experiments (cryo-EM) through experiments in materials science to in situ TEM experiments, anything is possible. This makes the cameras very popular with interdisciplinary working groups or TEM-core facilities.

This versatility is made possible by the specially developed by Direct Electron Sensor Technology. Traditional digital TEM cameras use a scintillator to the primary electrons into photons convert before they are then detected by the sensor of the camera. However, these traditional camera technology has limitations when it comes to resolution, the signal-to-noise ratio or the frame rate in the study of dynamic processes.

Ultimately, the purpose of electron microscopy is to generate high-impact results. Whether your research seeks to increase our basic scientific knowledge, discover next generation materials, or developing new therapies to treat human disease, Direct Electron’s motivation is to enhance your ability to complete your specific aims.

To give you the best possible equipment and software for your specific research, DE proudly offer a range of products, each optimized for certain applications.


Built on DE revolutionary Direct Detection Device (DDD®) sensors, the award-winning DE-series cameras are designed to deliver exceptional signal-to-noise ratio, sensitivity, and speed for demanding TEM applications from biology to materials science.


Founded upon more than two decades of experience with scientific CCDs, DE fiber-coupled CCD cameras provide uncommonly high quality TEM imaging at a low cost. FC-series cameras are ideal for common TEM applications such as specimen screening, tomography, pathology, negative stain, etc. Additionally, the inherently high dynamic range of these sensors make them a great choice for diffraction, spectroscopy, and other high-intensity applications.


Our LV-Series Cameras bring the power of direct detection to low-voltage TEM applications, such as LEEM/PEEM. These cameras are a dramatic improvement over traditional detectors such as channel plates + CCD.
