Scanning Electron Microscope delivers 3D volume imaging.

September 9, 2014

Integrating SEM with VolumeScope™ in-chamber microtome and analytical software, Teneo VS™ provides fully automated, large-volume reconstructions with optimized Z-axis resolution. VolumeScope uses serial block face imaging to acquire 3D volume from block of tissue or cells. ThruSight multi-energy deconvolution resolves features at different depths within each slice, while MAPS software uses tiling and stitching to acquire high-resolution composite images that are larger than single field of view.
