Kodak Electron Microscopy Films and are specially engineered to produce high-quality images in Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) or electron diffraction studies.
Each Kodak EM film type offers considerable latitude in performance, offering the flexibility to select one film for most, if not all applications. Kodak electron micrography films are best suited for medium-energy electrons (40 to 100 kv), but acceptable results can also be obtained at higher electron levels.
Kodak offers two choices for capturing quality images in the transmission electron microscope:
KODAK Electron Microscope Film 4489has approximately half the speed of KODAK Electron Image Film SO-163 film, but exhibits less curl and shorter pump-down times. Coated on a 7mils Estar support, KODAK Electron Microscope Film offers exceptional dimensional stability and eliminates the use of traditional glass support products.
KODAK Electron Image Film SO-163 offers broad exposure and development ranges. This enables a single film to collect many electrons (with improvements in signal-to-noise ratio), or collect fewer electrons in exposure-limiting situations (when graininess is a reasonable trade-off for higher speed).
NOTE: KODAK Electron Image Film SO-163 is two times faster than KODAK Electron Microscope Film 4489 Film; however, requires longer pump-down times and shows greater film curl. When using KODAK Electron Image Film SO-163 for the first time, it is recommended that you recalibrate your microscope exposure.

KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX P3200 Film / P3200TMZ is a multi-speed continuous-tone panchromatic black-and-white negative film that combines high to ultra-high film speeds with finer grain than that of other fast black-and-white films. It is especially useful for very fast action; for dimly lighted scenes where you can't use flash; for subjects that require good depth of field combined with fast shutter speeds; and for handholding telephoto lenses for fast action or in dim light. It is an excellent choice for indoor or nighttime sports events and available-light press photography, as well as law-enforcement and general surveillance applications that require exposure indexes of 3200 to 25,000.
KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX 100 Film / 100TMX is a continuous-tone panchromatic black-and-white negative film for general outdoor and indoor photography. It is especially useful for detailed subjects when you need maximum image quality. It is also excellent for copying black-and-white photographs, for making black-and-white copies from color transparencies, and for photomicrography. This film features medium speed (ISO 100/21° in most developers), extremely high sharpness, extremely fine grain, and very high resolving power. It allows a very high degree of enlargement.
You can also use T-MAX 100 Film to produce high-quality black-and-white slides from camera-original exposures, continuous-tone photographs, drawings, artwork, and radiographs when you process it with the KODAK T-MAX 100 Direct Positive Film Developing Outfit. The T-MAX Outfit also lets you use this film to produce copy negatives from black-and-white or color negatives, to make duplicate black-and-white slides, or to make black-and-white slides from color slides.
KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX 400 Film / 400TMY is a continuous-tone panchromatic black-and-white negative film especially useful for photographing dimly lighted subjects or fast action, for extending flash distance range, and for photographing subjects that require good depth of field and fast shutter speeds with maximum image quality for the film speed. It is also useful for scientific and biomedical work, especially when fluorescence photography is required. It has high speed (ISO 400/27° in most developers), very high sharpness, extremely fine grain, and high resolving power; it allows a high degree of enlargement.
EASTMAN Fine Grain Release Positive Film 5302 (35 mm) is a low-speed, high-resolution print film. This blue-sensitive black-and-white film is designed for general release printing.
KODAK PROFESSIONAL Technical Pan Film has been discontinued due to steadily declining demand over the recent years.
The last Tech Pan coating was several years ago. Since that time the gels used in the product formulation have become obsolete, and Kodak no longer manufactures the ESTAR support on which the 35 mm product was coated.
