Technology

Our new resin technology has been developed primarily to improve the diagnostic ability of hospital pathology laboratories. It has been produced to enhance the resolution of 3D images created by the new generation of SEM microscopes such as Gatan3view®2. Currently the advanced technology built into these microscopes is being held back by resins that are subject to electron beam damage that leads to the relatively low resolution images.

Sci-Tron’s 3D bio-imaging resin technology effectively bridges the gap that exists between the latest SEM microscopes and current resins. It delivers in hours a 3D image with as high a resolution as a hospital TEM operator would get but only after weeks of work.

An important point to note is that the new microscopes can be retrofitted into existing hospital equipment that staff have been trained to use, reducing costs considerably.
