ZEISS Digital Classrooms for Medical Laboratory Technicians

Interactive techniques for laboratory investigation

Customer Story

Knowledge

The Medical Laboratory Technician training program focuses on histology, clinical chemistry, microbiology and hematology, studying bodily fluids and tissue samples to detect pathogens. Other key aspects of the training include equipment and quality management. All of this makes the microscope one of the most important tools. By connecting them with one another you can create a digital classroom, where the lecturer can view live images from all of the microscopes on his iPad at any one time.

3D quantitative analysis of snow compaction

The X-ray microtomography lab at Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Sweden shares interesting insights

Customer Story

The research goal at the X-ray microtomography lab at Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Sweden is to develop methods and tools that help us better understand heterogeneous materials and how they behave in different environments, and at different spatial scales.

The snow sample represents fresh snow acquired only minutes after snowfall. The width of the snow crystal is approximately 0.85 mm. The width (diameter) of the center tunnel ranges from 60 micron (at the entrance) to 220 micron on the opposite side.

Introducing ZEISS ZEN Intellesis: Machine learning for microscopy

Bringing our customers new solutions through digitalization

News

By adding robust new capabilities like machine learning to our microscopy systems, we are initiating a step-change in the way our customers in industry and academia manage and process vast amounts of imaging data generated by a range of imaging modalities. This enables them to easily and intelligently obtain scalable, quantitative insight.

The first algorithmic solution introduced by the ZEISS ZEN Intellesis platform makes integrated, easy to use, powerful segmentation for 2D and 3D datasets available to the routine microscopy user. ZEISS ZEN Intellesis software is available for the company’s full range of optical, confocal, X-ray, electron and ion microscopes using the ZEISS Efficient Navigation (ZEN) platform.

New field emission scanning electron microscope ZEISS GeminiSEM 450 introduced

Addressing the highest demands in imaging and analytics from any sample

News

With the field emission scanning electron microscope ZEISS GeminiSEM 450, you benefit from high resolution and surface sensitive imaging. The optical system supports supports your work in obtaining the best analytical results – especially when working with low voltages. High-throughput electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) analysis and low voltage X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) deliver excellent results due to ZEISS Gemini 450’s ability to precisely and independently control spot size and beam current. With the Gemini 2 design, you always work under optimized conditions as the system allows to switch seamlessly between imaging and analytical modes at the touch of a button. This makes ZEISS GeminiSEM 450 the ideal platform for the highest demands in imaging and analytical performance.

New 2D Superresolution mode for ZEISS Airyscan delivers 120 nanometer lateral resolution

Improved optical sectioning brings higher resolution without acquiring a z-stack

News

At Neuroscience 2017, a new processing mode for the ZEISS LSM 8 family with Airyscan has been introduced. ZEISS Airyscan allows for the unique combination of superresolution imaging with increased sensitivity and acquisition speed. It works with standard samples and dyes, and captures 3D data even in thicker samples that need a higher penetration depth. The unique 32-channel GaAsP array detector captures more spatial information than traditional confocal microscopes. The new 2D Superresolution mode now uses this additional information to create an optical section of 0.2 Airy units (AU) and resolves structures down to 120 nanometer laterally in a single image.
