captures high-

quality virtual slide images, offers flexibility to empower advanced quantitative image analysis for brain, cancer, stem cell and drug discovery research. Its intuitive workflows enable users to start scanning a slide in as few as two clicks. Imaging modes include brightfield, fluorescence, darkfield, phase contrast and polarization.


Linkam Updates Cryo Stage for Correlative Microscopy

Te CMS196V3 Cryo-Correlative Microscopy

system enables a full workflow for correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) for correlation of high-resolution structural information with biochemical processes within cells. Tis model can integrate with a

wide range of research-grade upright microscopes and offers enhanced sample stability for cryo-imaging, improved sample handling, and reduced sample contamination. It maintains the sample’s vitrified state by liquid nitrogen cooling, providing proven capabilities to safely handle and transfer cryo samples.

Tomocube Wins Microscopy Today Innovation Award for HT-2 Microscope

Te world’s first holotomographic microscope with 3D fluorescence was recognized as a photonics breakthrough by the 2019

Microscopy Today Innovation Awards. Quantitative phase imaging (QPI) of

label-free 3D refractive index (RI) tomography combined

with fluorescence imaging reveals the structure, volume, surface area, concentration, and dry matter mass of individual live cells in real time. Holotomography and fluorescence correlative analysis in 2D, 3D,

and 4D will advance research for a better understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.
