Carl Zeiss, developer of microscopes, will showcase optical and electron microscopy solutions at the Pittcon Conference and Expo 2011, to be held between March 13 and 18 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
The company will exhibit its Shuttle & Find interface used in correlative light and electron microscopy applications. The Axio Imager 2 is an embedded microscope platform for correlative microscopy. EVO HD is a bright electron source for low-kV resolution in a standard SEM, and the ATLAS, delivering large area picture capture for high productivity. Many such high performance optical and electron microscopy products will also be on exhibit.
The company will also participate in the ‘lunch and learn’ seminars, such as the Correlative Microscopy and Atlas, the Helium Ion Microscopy for High Resolution Imaging and Nanofabrication, and EVO HD – High Performance, Total Flexibility.
The Shuttle & Find interface links light scanning microscopes in life sciences and recalls areas of interest in inert samples in the microscope. The whole process lasts just a few seconds and opens new avenues in microscopy for quick and accurate overlay of light and microscope pictures, enlarging the details, and combining of functional and structural data.
Pittcon is an annual conference and expo targeting laboratory science. Pittcon 2011 will attract new technology and instrumentation from over 950 producers, an educational program, and networking to provide a platform to exchange ideas with scientists from across the globe.
