MICROSCOPY AND ANALYSIS 38NOVEMBER 2011CIRCLENO. 35 ORONLINE: www.microscopy-analysis.comWeb Microscopy 2.0We live in the midst of Web 2.0 and Cloud computingrevolution. Today you can store documents, imagesand music on the Cloud and access them from anyweb browser; you can share data instantly and col-laborate in real time. If we can do so many thingsonline, why not image analysis? With proliferation ofhigh-speed internet and digital imaging, may be it istime to bring web 2.0 technology to microscopy? One aspiring technology startup thinks so: SmartImaging Technologies, a VC-backed technology ven-ture from Texas, pledges to bring Web 2.0 technologyto microscopy with Simagis Live cloud software. "Wewant to bring power and convenience of web appli-cations to microscopy and microanalysis, and makeweb technology available to millions of microscopeusers around the globe. If you have digital cameraand Internet- you are ready for Web Microscopy,"says company founder Vitali Khvatkov.With Web Microscopy, a small software utility onyour desktop will automatically upload your digitalimages to a cloud server so you can work with themonline via a web interface. If you have automatedmicroscope stage, you can stream individual image200kVTransmissionElectronMicroscopeA new 200 kV transmission electron microscope fromJEOL delivers high throughput nano-analysis forprocess and quality control of mass produced semi-conductor and materials samples. The multi-functionJEOL JEM-2800 features high resolution imaging inTEM, STEM, and SE modes; ultrasensitive elementalmapping with a large angle Energy Dispersive Spec-trometer (EDS); Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy(EELS) for chemical analysis; critical dimension analy-sis; tomography; and in situ observation of samples.The all-new TEM functions without use of the tradi-tional fluorescent screen on the electron column. The JEM-2800 speeds specimen observationthrough fully automatic functions including adjust-ment of focus, astigmatism, contrast, brightness, crys-tal zone axis alignment, and height. Switchingbetween analysis modes is seamless, and quick datacollection shortens turnaround time between sam-ples. An operator navigation system and on-screenoperating guide make the JEM-2800 a high through-put, user-friendly TEM for any skill level. Additional features and key specifications of theJEM-2800 include a Schottky field-emission electrongun, highly stable eucentric side-entry goniometerstage, a magnification range of 100??toWidefield Superresolution MicroscopeWith the new Leica SR GSD from LeicaMicrosystems, scientists can now achieve res-olutions far below the limit of diffraction thathave never been attained before in widefieldfluorescence microscopy. The system is capa-ble of resolving details as small as 20 nm. The SR GSD is based on GSDIM (groundstate depletion followed by individual mole-cule return) technology exclusively licensedfrom MPI Goettingen. It has already delivered amaz-ing results in scientific experiments during its testphase. One of the key advantages of the GSDIMmethod is that it can be used with conventional fluo-rescence labels routinely applied in fluorescenceimaging applications. GSDIM provides the highest res-olution possible with a light microscope today, almostequalling that of an electron microscope.The Leica SR GSD is based on a fully automated TIRF150,000,000??using STEM, 0.1 nm TEM resolution and0.20 nm BF/DF STEM resolution.The JEM-2800 is JEOL's latest addition to its com-prehensive lineup of 100-300kV TEMs and mostrecently the ARM200F atomic resolution TEM. Thefirst US customer, a global semiconductor manufac-turer, will take delivery of the new JEM-2800 withlarge solid angle EDS this summer. Contact: JEOL USA, Inc. www.jeolusa.comtiles to the server for stitching and creating mosaicimages or virtual slides, to view your entire specimenat full resolution online. Once your digital images orvirtual slides are uploaded, they can be viewed, anno-tated and measured by any number of people at thesame time from any computer or web tablet. You canupload composite images with several fluorescencechannels and view them online with overlays. Web Viewers utilize zoom technology similar toGoogle Maps and allow panning and zooming on vir-tual slides of unlimited size. Contact: Smart Imaging Technologies Companywww.live.simagis.comsystem. Combining the benefits of super-resolutionwith TIRF microscopy is one of many options. The sys-tem can also be used for a wide range of applicationsin all areas of live cell microscopy and high-end fluo-rescence microscopy. As a flexible, multifunctional sys-tem, the Leica SR GSD gives researchers the freedomto tailor the system exactly to their needs.Contact: Leica Microsystems www.leica-microsystems.com
