FEI Co. of Hillsboro, Ore., a scientific instrumentation
supplier, has released four software applications that increase the throughput and
ease of use of its electron microscopes for biological research. The applications
– Correlative Navigation Utility, EPU, ARGOS (automated recognition of geometries,
objects and segmentations) and Extended Slice & View – are expected to
make electron microscopes more useful for researchers involved in structural, cellular
and tissue biology as they build the full solution from sample to biological answer.
