Welcome to the
Surplus Equipment Listings WWW Page

This forum is being supplied so that Individuals and Organizations can place Surplus Equipment announcements on-line which are of interest to the microscopy community. There are no charges to use this service, however, if you do receive monetary compensation above "disposal costs" it would be appropriate to make a voluntary contribution of an appropriate amount (i.e we are running on the honor system) to the the Listserver to help defray the cost of running this service.

In order to submit a Equipment Announcement into this database please send the brief announcement using this Electronic Form. Each submission will be reviewed by someone (probably Nestor) to insure it's appropriateness (not accuracy) for inclusion. Only Electronic Form submissions will be accepted.

Note: Updates are NOT automatic and depend upon the availability of a reviewer to read each submission!!
So don't expect to see your listing to appear below for at least 24-48 hours.

To delete a listing send an Email to zaluzec@microscopy.com requesting that your listing be removed, please insure you provide the listed Ref# and enough detail so that the correct listing can be identified.

The Microscopy Listserver assumes no responsiblity for accuracy or timeliness of the data that is entered presented here. That is the sole responsibility of the Information Provider.

The following list represents current Items posted to the Surplus Equipment DataBase. The data is approximately in chronological order.

Hitachi SEM S-450

I ran a business with a Hitachi S-450 for the past 15 years, recently some part of the SEM malfunctioned leaving only part of the SEM operational. I dont want the system anymore. It has a working solid state BSE detector that gives amazing images and a working PC based x-ray microanalysis system that is also working. If anybody would like to take the whole package I would be happy to give it away. I have lots of pictures I would be happy to send. I am located in Ridgefield CT.

ultramicrotomes and glass knife cutter

LKB Bromma and RMC MT6000-XL ultramicrotomes available for pick-up in Central Pennsylvania. Also a glass knife maker. Some accessories available, too. We are decommissioning our TEM and the items must go by the end of the year.

Leica EM UC7 ultramicrotome

We purchased this instrument approximately 3 years ago, complete with table, etc. The sole user was a post-doctoral associate who has since left. It is in perfect condition. The Leica website provides a full description of the ultramicrotome. If you have an interest, please contact me and I can provide pictures of the instrument in our laboratory. With table and controller, our purchase prices was ~$60,000, but I will consider all reasonable offers for this instrument that could be quite beneficial to any EM facility or group of users.

Used 2011 Gatan K2 Summit direct electron detector for sale

The Cryo-EM Facility at UTSW offers for sale a used 2011 Gatan K2 Summit direct electron detector (specifications below) for the minimum asking price of $250,000 USD (original purchase list price was $630,000 in 2011).

The URL to view and/or bid on the used K2 camera is:
The auction has started and will end 3/31/2017.

• 2011 Gatan K2 summit direct electron detector (camera for transmission electron microscope); serial number: 12062201P1000.
• Direct electron detector cameras in general and the K2 camera in particular are a major reason for what has been termed “resolution revolution” in cryo-electron microscopy structure determination.
• We are selling, because we have currently three K2 direct electron detectors at UTSW, but “only” two high-end TEMs, so one K2 camera has become surplus.
• The here offered K2 camera was purchased 2011 by UTSW, and was mounted from 11/2012 till 9/2016 on a JEOL2200 at UTSW.
• The camera sensor was renewed during Gatan factory servicing for re-certification for service contract by Gatan 5/2016; factory and field certification of compliance (incl. DQE), as well confirmation of the sensor-renewal, photos and orig. quote are provided at this link: www.dropbox.com/sh/g6upys1y8whhskd/AAClb4x9wpLpyec_5zrp4ECEa?dl=0&lst=
• The camera was in working condition and under Gatan service contract at the time when it was dismounted from the (then-retiring) JEOL microscope by a Gatan field engineer Sept. 2016. Since then, the packaged camera and components have been stored in our climate-controlled cryo-EM facility at ~20% humidity (waiting for surplus sale approval).
