ZEISS Microscopy

Free Lunch & Learn Series

ZEISS X-ray Microscopy and Applications

Users of  X-ray Microscopes will present various applications and the added value of such systems for research facilities across different fields. ZEISS uniquely enables X-ray Microscopy in the laboratory and unlocks new imaging capabilities through its patented technologies. Taking advantage of the broad portfolio of ZEISS Microscopy, it is now possible to run correlative microscopy experiments through true multi-scale and multi-modal imaging, thanks to suitable and specifically designed correlative platforms.
