ZEISS Launches Promotion on the ELYRA P.1 Superresolution Microscope
(Nanowerk News) Carl Zeiss Microscopy, LLC announces the launch of a special promotion on the ZEISS ELYRA P.1, the ultimate in three-dimensional, superresolution light microscopy. Using PALM or dSTORM techniques, the ELYRA P.1 can localize fluorescently-labeled structures in three dimensions yielding achievable resolutions down to 20 nm laterally and 50 nm axially. Detection with an effective resolution down to 20 nm reveals substructure and patterns where conventional light microscopy will simply show co-localization. Users can correlate superresolution data with electron microscopy images for in-depth analyses.
Customers in the U.S. and Puerto Rico can acquire the ZEISS ELYRA P.1 for $395,000 if the order is received by September 30, 2014. Visit www.zeiss.com/superrespromo to request a quote or a product demonstration.
