3DEM of Brain Tissue Using Rapid Automated Preparation
Join us for a webinar on automating serial block-face SEM (a type of 3-dimensional electron microscopy—3DEM) biological specimen preparation for neurological tissues.

Speaker: Emily Benson, Senior Research Technologist,
           3DEM Ultrastructural Imaging and Computation Core,
           Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic
Date: Thursday, Oct 22, 2020
Time: 11am CT

Benson will describe rapid, automated specimen preparation, where she reduced a 4-to 5-day manual process to a 7.5 hour automated process, including 100% resin infiltration.

Congratulations winners, and thanks to everyone who participated!


Extra Set of Hands ... When You Need It Most
The mPrep ASP-1000 offers a workaround for those with limited lab access, continuing to process biological samples while you work from home or on other projects. The ASP-1000 provides minimal specimen handling, consistent processing procedures, and quantitatively and qualitatively comparative results to manual prep. You can even set up a webcam on the instrument to monitor its progress.

Now’s the time to schedule your virtual ASP-1000 demo!
