Cancer research: Application for correlative light-electron microscopy

June 08, 2017

cellbiology_figure1.jpgWe at Delmic are continuously investigating the range of applications for correlative light-electron microscopy. Recently, we have published new content on our website regarding the application of CLEM for cancer research.

An integrated correlative system is beneficial for research on the development and spread of cancer because it allows the scientist to view rare and transient events such as invasion and metastasis at a high resolution. It also allows you to identify regions of interest within the broader context, opening up information about the behavior of cancer cells in the context of cell tissue.

The SECOM - Delmic's own integrated correlative light-electron microscopy system - has already contributed to research which sheds light on metastasis resulting from colorectal cancer. For some time now, the SECOM system has been used at the Francis Crick Institute for research on cancer.
