JENA/OBERKOCHEN, Germany & PEABODY, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carl Zeiss today introduced a unique hardware/software interface to connect light and scanning electron microscopes for correlative microscopy in the life sciences. The “Shuttle & Find” interface enables users to recall regions of interest in fixed specimens in an electron microscope, which were previously identified in a light microscope and vice versa. The entire process takes only a few seconds. This opens up totally new dimensions in microscopy: rapid and precise overlay of light and electron microscope images, high-resolution magnification of the details, and the merger of functional and structural information.
