FEI announced the availability of its Tecnai Arctica transmission electron microscope (TEM) for structural biology research.
Electron microscopy—both scanning (SEM) and transmission (TEM)—can be used by an increasing number of life scientists. Simpler sample preparation and enhanced interfaces bring this technology to new users. To explore the new technologies in this realm of imaging, this article talks with experts from Carl Zeiss, FEI, and JEOL.
Nikon Instruments introduced a High Content microscope system for imaging and managing biological assays utilizing a system based on the Nikon Ti inverted microscope and NIS Elements Software. This new High Content Microscope system pairs the Ti inverted microscope with NIS Elements HC Software to provide a dedicated interface for high content acquisition and analysis routines.
Carl Zeiss Microscopy introduces the Tab4Lab, a tablet comprising a touch pad and the required software. In combination with the AxioCamERc 5s camera, the two components form an image recording system. The software is based on the ZEN imaging software.
Scientifica is launching its Multiphoton Imaging System in the US. Scientifica’s system features a modular design, easing its use with differing microscopes, as well as components being added to a Scientifica SliceScope microscope.
FEI announced a suite of solutions for correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM). New methods in correlative microscopy from FEI bring data from different imaging techniques together automatically.
Olympus offers researchers doing whole slide imaging the option of using darkfield illumination to image specimens on its VS120 virtual slide microscope system. The Olympus VS120 is a whole slide imaging system that also offers brightfield and fluorescence illumination.
Olympus introduced its IX3 line of inverted research microscopes, three systems that offer researchers the ability to customize their microscopes. The systems offer precision, stability, and optical performance for quantitative measurement applications.
Nikon Instruments released the Eclipse Ni series of upright biological microscopes. Completely redesigned to replace the Eclipse 80i and 90i, the Ni series' enhanced features include a newly developed laser illumination unit that supports applications for full field variable oblique laser illumination.
Prior Scientific released the LumenLED system for fluorescence microscopy applications. LumenLED offers two modes of operation that allows the LED’s to be optimized for specific applications. In Constant Light Mode, a photodiode is used to provide a closed loop feedback mechanism to ensure short and long term stability of illumination intensity.
Asylum Research announced the new Electrochemistry Cell (EC Cell) for its MFP-3D AFMs. The EC Cell is a platform for electrochemical experiments combined with AFM imaging.
The Odyssey Sa Infrared Imaging System offers the advantages of infrared imaging and the flexibility to handle both plate-based assays and quantitative Western blots. The Odyssey Sa is a new addition to the line of Odyssey Imaging Systems from LI-COR.
FEI announced the Magellan extreme resolution scanning electron microscope (SEM) optimized specifically for life science imaging. The Magellan SEM enables life science researchers and cell biologists to actually view the entire organization of a cell in its natural, fully-hydrated state.
Carl Zeiss introduces a new generation of ergonomic and compact tissue culture microscopes with its Primo Vert Monitor. The microscope replaces traditional eyepieces with an integrated digital camera and LCD display.
Leica Microsystems is bringing its new A series to the market especially for the requirements in production of printed circuit boards or medical products: The Leica A60 F and A60 S stereomicroscopes make products and components optimally visible, enable subassemblies to be processed easily, and increase productivity.
