Thermo Fisher Scientific, Leica and ZEISS will contribute a total sum of ten million Euros to the project

The letter of intent was signed today during an official ceremony on the campus of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg by representatives of the German government together with industry and foundation partners. The new centre for light and electron microscopy will be a unique service facility for the life sciences and unite cutting-edge equipment, experts and data analysis. The centre will be open to visiting scientists from all over the world as well as industry partners. It will make new technologies at EMBL available to foster a better understanding of the molecular basis of life and disease.

Combine multiple imaging technologies from ZEISS and gain new perspectives on your sample

Microscopy is so much more than simply making small things visible. With different microscopy techniques, you can observe living cells in motion, collect three-dimensional measurements, identify chemical elements, count tiny particles, characterize surfaces, create nano structures, and look into the smallest objects without destroying them.

Improving ease-of-use and accelerating the experimental workflow

WITec’s solution for correlative Raman-SEM imaging is now available for ZEISS Sigma 300, a field emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM). With this jointly-developed system, WITec and ZEISS have furthered their collaboration to provide a fully-integrated instrument available as an OEM product through ZEISS that features a standard, unmodified vacuum chamber and SEM column along with a complete confocal Raman microscope and spectrometer. It expands the range of choices available to the researcher and incorporates generations of experience in Raman spectroscopic imaging and advanced structural analysis.
