Navitar Inc.

Jan 2012
Optical technology provider Navitar Inc. of Rochester, N.Y., has announced a licensing agreement with German optics manufacturer Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH, under which Zeiss has license to Navitar’s Hoffman Modulation Contrast (HMC) for use in its iHMC product line. Zeiss will manufacture objectives, modulators, slit apertures and condensers using the technology and will distribute and sell them under the iHMC name. HMC is a light microscopy contrast method used for viewing colorless and transparent biological specimens. Navitar received sole ownership of the trademark after its recent acquisition of Modulation Optics of Glen Cove, N.Y.

In other news, Carl Zeiss Microscopy, a Carl Zeiss Group company, recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of its CrossBeam FIB-SEM (focused ion beam-scanning electron microscope) technology. The ceremony was held at the Center for Composite Materials at the University of Delaware, which has acquired an Auriga 60 CrossBeam workstation for its Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory, currently under construction. The Auriga includes a Gemini SEM and an FIB column. The SEM column enables the Auriga to create high-resolution nanoscale images, while the FIB column allows it to remove material from the sample by ion milling. The device has applications in life sciences research.
