New High-Precision, High-Volume Lens Assembly Capability


Melles Griot continues to expand its high-precision lens assembly manufacturing with the acquisition of the state-of-the-art alignment turning station ATS 200 from TRIOPTICS. T is new machine has


been successfully integrated into its precision optics facility and is now fully operational for cost-eff ective volume production of high-performance microscope objectives and other precision lenses. Melles Griot off ers custom microscope objectives from prototype to higher-volume production quantities at prices previously achieved by only very high-volume standard objectives.

First-Ever AFM Images of Microvilli on Live Cells


In a just-released article in the Journal of Molecular Recognition , Dr. Hermann Schillers et al. report the first visualization of individual microvilli on living cells with atomic force microscopy. “It was previously impossible to resolve the fi nest structures of a live cell like microvilli, but now with the BioScope Resolve, I can image them easily in one hour,” noted Dr. Schillers.” Bruker’s BioScope Resolve


clear view for the fi™ brings soſt cell membrane structures into rst time.

Nature Methods Names Cryo-Electron Microscopy “Method of the Year 2015”


Cryo-electron microscopy was named Method of the Year 2015, an award given by the publication Nature Methods . FEI pioneered cryo-EM with its introduction of the Titan Krios


transmission electron microscope in 2008. Since then, they have continued to make advancements in the technology and have partnered with several leading scientists to develop a sample preparation and imaging workflow that could significantly change structural and cellular biology research.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Uses a Renishaw In-Via Confocal Raman Microscope to Support the Development of Nanomolecular Probes


The Kircher laboratory at Memorial Sloan Kettering is developing novel nanoprobes for molecular imaging, image-guided therapy, and theranostics. Its ultimate goal is to develop a universal technology that allows precise


determination of the actual spread of a tumor in vivo . Currently surgeons cannot see the microscopic extent of the tumor during a procedure, which is essential information for tumor removal.

Researchers First to Prove Zika Virus Associated with Microcephaly


Scientists from the Institute of Microbiology and Immunology and the Institute of Pathology in Ljubljana, Slovenia, are the first in the world to publish and prove that the Zika virus is associated with microcephaly. The complete genome of Zika was recovered from the fetal brain. Imaging of the ultra-thin sections and brain homogenate was performed with the use of the new JEOL 120kV JEM-1400Plus transmission electron microscope and the older model JEOL JEM-1200EXII.

FEI Launches PerGeos Software for Oil and Gas Exploration and Production


FEI announced PerGeos™, the industry’s fi rst comprehensive digital


rock soſt ware that helps geoscientists rapidly interpret and model digital rock imagery so that exploration and production (E&P) engineers can obtain meaningful, actionable data quickly and easily. PerGeos provides a better understanding of formation features and physical property of reservoir rock. Using PerGeos, core analysts, geologists, and petrophysicists can integrate data from multiple sources and share descriptions and statistics using a common platform.
