Carl Zeiss Microscopy to Present on Fast and Convenient 3D Imaging for Tissue Samples
(Nanowerk News) Carl Zeiss Microscopy, a leading provider of microscopy solutions for a variety of research, clinical and industrial applications, announces that they will be hosting a webinar on 3View technology on Wednesday, October 10th, 2012. When combined with MERLIN or ΣIGMA™ VP field emission scanning electron microscopes (FE-SEMs) from Carl Zeiss, 3View can provide fast and convenient 3D imaging for tissue samples. 3View, an ultramicrotome inside the SEM chamber, acquires high resolution 3D data from resin embedded cell and tissue samples in the shortest possible time.
The sample is continuously cut and imaged to produce thousands of serial images in a single day, each perfectly aligned as they are all generated from one fixed block. The FE-SEMs MERLIN, MERLIN Compact and ΣIGMA VP are ideally suited to support this application. The unique GEMINI column technology delivers images with TEM like quality and allows extremely fast 3D imaging of large volumes at nanometer resolution.
The webinar will feature three expert speakers. These physics and microscopy specialists will summarize the 3View technology, present on the advantages of ZEISS FE-SEMs in connection with 3View, offer great application examples using the MERLIN 3View, and answer a number of questions submitted by webinar attendees. All three speakers have unique backgrounds and wide-ranging expertise to offer.
