Airyscanning - a novel approach to confocal imaging

Confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) is the recognized standard for 3D fluorescence microscopy. It combines excellent optical sectioning performance with flexible scanning strategies for imaging and photo manipulation, making it the method of choice for a vast range of applications. Airyscanning is a new detection concept that uses an array... von Carl Zeiss Microscopy GmbH mehr

3D X-ray Microscopy: a new high resolution tomographic technology for biological specimens

A new field of 3D X-ray Microscopy (XRM) has emerged bringing dramatic resolution and contrast improvements to X-ray tomographic imaging of biological specimens for correlative studies and hierarchical structure investigations of hard and soft tissue. An X-ray microscope uses an X-ray source rather than a visible light source to view the internal... von Carl Zeiss X-ray Microscopy, Inc. mehr
