MBF Bioscience Unveils Whole Mouse Brain Automatic Region Delineation and Cell Mapping

Analyzing cellular populations within specific anatomies in brain images requires expertise in both neuroanatomy and cellular identification. This typically involves a scientist comparing experimental images with a reference atlas, manually delineating anatomical regions, and marking cell populations within. NeuroInfo

technology from MBF Bioscience, enables researchers to automatically identify and delineate mouse brain regions based on the publicly available Allen Mouse Brain Reference Atlas.

Development of New Integrated Cryo-Imaging Solutions

Leica Microsystems announced a collaboration with the Centre for Structural Systems Biology. T e partnership will see major collaboration between the two parties for the development of new integrated Cryo-Imaging solutions and the establishment of an advanced microscopy facility. T e use of cryo-EM that deep-freezes biological samples thus enabling them to be examined in their native state at high-resolution is central to the CSSB’s research and was recently the subject of the 2017 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.

Medium-Load Precision Motorized Positioning Systems Catalog from PI

A new catalog from PI includes products developed to move loads of 22 lb to 110 lb over distances up to 300 mm. It also includes rotation stages that provide rotation angles of 360° with accuracy to ±0.004°. Achieving accuracy in the micron and the sub-micron realm is critical, and stages with ballscrew/servo or stepper drive combinations can be superior to direct drive motors when it is necessary to achieve high holding force, or torque—or particularly for vertical positioning.
