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.
Princeton Instruments announced availability of a new microscope interface designed for exclusive use with the company’s recently introduced aberration-free IsoPlane imaging spectrograph. The Princeton Instruments MicroSpec microscope interface allows researchers to acquire quality images and spectra of their samples with one pre-engineered system.
Prior Scientific introduced the H117IX3 flat top stage for the Olympus IX3 microscope range. While the H117IX3 is ideal for all high precision biomedical and material science scanning operations, specific attention was given to designing the H117IX3 to assist the researcher who is doing prolonged live cell studies.
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.

This animation shows how FRET occurs, based on cells transfected with plasmids encoding fluorescent tagged proteins. CFP and YFP were used as donor and acceptor respectively.
To make up for my lack of microscope in my last vid I show you how to kinda make one your own. Music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y_R4hGrFdk&feature=channel_video_title Subscribe for SCIENCE! Website: http://www.mylespower.co.uk Twitter:...
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.
