This bench-top electron microscope by RCA (Radio Corporation of America) was manufactured in 1950.

It is made up of two segments that are connected by a hose. The bottom segment, which is made up of numerous valves, is responsible for generating the electron beam and traditionally sits under a bench. The top domed segment houses the specimen that is being analysed. The unit is made up of copper, brass and stainless steel. It magnified objects by 6000.

Used by Commonwealth Serum Laboratories (CSL) Ltd, Parkville, Victoria. One box of plates included.
