3D Ultrastructure

Block face SEM approaches share features with confocal microscopy that ease adoption. Speed and reproducibility of block face SEM approaches permit kinds of statistical analyses that were not previously possible/feasible. Block face imaging simplifies electron microcopy allowing users with no experience to collect high resolution 3D data. The 3View® system is extremely stable and can run for weeks uninterrupted to acquire large volume data sets at high resolution.
