How does an imaging facility benefit from fast imaging?

Posted by Job Fermie on Mar 18, 2020 11:00:00 AM

One of the struggles of imaging facilities today is managing a large number of research projects simultaneously. With limited imaging resources, providing every project stakeholder with the data needed to answer their research question becomes a heavy task and can lead to a backlog of projects. Facility operators may feel pressured, and projects may be turned down due to a lack of available resources or time. The situation is further complicated by a growing need in the research community to image larger and more intricate samples, such as whole organs or bulk tissue. So, what types of projects require a lot of time in imaging facilities, and how does a fast imaging solution help them out?

Overcoming the challenges of large-scale electron microscopy

Posted by Job Fermie on Feb 17, 2020 11:14:49 AM

For decades, electron microscopes have proven to be great tools for resolving structures at a nanometer scale. Electron microscopy (EM) is increasingly being used in large-scale biological projects, either for volume imaging or large area mapping. In both cases, the desire to resolve nanoscale details is combined with the desire to place these observations into a larger context, which can cover a large area or span through a three-dimensional volume. Thanks to increased automation and image processing efforts, these large-scale imaging projects are now feasible. Information from these projects has already proven highly beneficial for a variety of research fields, including developmental and cell biology, neurosciences and pathology [1, 2, 3].
