Maps is a modular software application for automated acquisition of high resolution images from large areas, that converts your instrument into a high throughput image data production device.
Maps allows you to:
- Acquire high resolution images over large areas
- Easily find regions of interest
- Acquire images from a sample with different settings
- Automate the image acquisition process (unattended operation)
- Correlate data from different sources
- Compatibility with current Thermo Scientific SEM, FIB-SEM, and TEM platforms; providing a unified user experience across all instrument types.
- Integrated approach to data acquisition, annotation and storage.
- Automated acquisition of large overviews at any magnification (tile and stitch); multiple acquisitions can be set up for unsupervised batch data collection.
- Setup and coordination of experiments across multiple microscopes.
- Correlation of images from different microscopes, including imported images from 3rd party instruments using the integrated Bio-Formats Library.
Maps offline viewer
Description: This is a free, standalone application for viewing Maps projects from a PC. OS supported: Windows 7/8.1/10. Instructions: After installation, launch the application and import your projects for viewing.
Maps Offline Viewer allows you to open Maps projects on any PC. It also allows easier sharing of results without the need to have a licensed version of Maps . The viewer does not allow processing steps like stitching etc.
Fundamental plant biology research is enabled by cryo electron microscopy, which provides information on proteins (with single particle analysis), to their cellular context (with tomography), all the way up to the overall structure of the plant (large volume analysis).
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is used when the nature of the disease cannot be established via alternative methods. With nano-biological imaging, TEM provides accurate and reliable insight for certain pathologies.
Single Particle Analysis
Single particle analysis (SPA) is a cryo electron microscopy technique that enables structural characterization at near-atomic resolutions, unraveling dynamic biological processes and the structure of biomolecular complexes/assemblies.
Cryo electron tomography (cryo-ET) delivers both structural information about individual proteins as well as their spatial arrangements within the cell. This makes it a truly unique technique and also explains why the method has such an enormous potential for cell biology. Cryo-ET can bridge the gap between light microscopy and near-atomic-resolution techniques like single-particle analysis.
MicroED is an exciting new technique with applications in the structural determination of small molecules and protein. With this method, atomic details can be extracted from individual nanocrystals (<200 nm in size), even in a heterogeneous mixture.
