New HIVE installation at the University of Manchester, UK

A new HIVE system has been installed by the Acquifer UK team at the University of Manchester. The facilities’ need was two-fold: 1. high speed, big data handling of light-sheet microscope data and 2. an active processing storage for all images and data from confocal microscopes and light microscopes. The HIVE system matched these needs perfectly! The HIVE is directly…

New research using iCLEM to measure organic matter in geological samples

To date, the most common applications for the SECOM integrated correlative light-electron microscopy system are in cellular biology and medical research. However, a recent paper published in the Journal of Microscopy demonstrates a novel application for iCLEM in imaging sedimentary organic matter. This research was conducted using the SECOM system to obtain conclusive data on different organic…
