New Automated Prep Protocols for3D EM and TEM

Even though the Microscopy and Microanalysis 2020 meeting is virtual, you’ll still find us there with scientific presentations, a virtual booth, and a new giveaway (more on that below!). Include these presentations in your agenda:

Tues, 8/4/20 3:00 – 4:14pm Session A14.2 – Vendor Symposium
  • Past, Present, and Future of Electron Microscopy Chemical Processing Workflows (Presentation 220)
    Goodman SL, et al. University of WI-Madison and Microscopy Innovations
  • Automated Preparation of Nerve Tissue for TEM  (Presentation 223)
    Strader, TE et al. Microscopy Innovations and University of WI-Madison

Wed, 8/5/20 3:30 – 5:00pm  |  Session B10.P1 – 3D Scanning Electron Microscopy Imaging of Biological Samples
  • Serial Block-Face SEM of Brain Tissue Using Rapid Automated Preparation  (Poster 534)
    Benson EK, et al. Cleveland Clinic & University of WI-Madison
EM-style Mask
Social Distancing – in EM Style!
For the past few years at M&M, we’ve had a drawing for custom-made messenger bags made with cool EM images. As a sign of the times we find ourselves in, we’ll have a drawing for unique, custom-made face masks with EM images at the M&M 2020 meeting. Winner(s) can submit an image that we’ll print on fabric to create your very own, one-of-a-kind face mask!

Visit our virtual exhibitor booth for details and register to win!

Try Automated Processing to Help with EM Lab Social Distancing?
As our country struggles with the resurgences of Covid-19, you may find your lab under restricted access. Our Automated Specimen Processor, the ASP-1000, enables your specimen prep work to continue. Set up your reagents, load your specimen in an mPrep capsule, press Start ... and walk away.

The ASP processes your samples according to your protocol, enabling you to leave the lab (or work on other projects). You’ll receive a text message when the ASP is done, alerting you that the samples are ready to put in the oven.

The ASP-1000 requires only minimal specimen handling, yet provides consistent run-to-run processing and high quality results—enabling lab work to continue while keeping you safely socially distanced from the laboratory.

Virus Specimen Preparation in Biosafety Level 3-4 Laboratories 

We’d like to thank Candace Blancett, M.S., from US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), for her excellent presentation on negative staining preparation of pathogenic viruses in high containment BSL4 labs.
