New paper on overlay in correlative microscopy in Nature

March 09, 2017

In the biological sciences, researchers often rely on the combined data from an electron and fluorescence microscope. These images are overlayed to obtain information on proteins or small organelles within their ultrastructural context. The most common method to achieve overlay is with the use of fidicual markers. When dealing with a nanoscale resolution, however, fiducial markers can be cumbersome and unreliable. A paper published in the Scientific Reports section of Nature.com demonstrates an alternative method which is reliable and straightforward: automated overlay.
