Optics and optoelectronics manufacturer Zeiss of Oberkochen, Germany, has announced that it will acquire 3-D x-ray microscope provider Xradia Inc. of Pleasanton, Calif., and will rename it Carl Zeiss X-ray Microscopy Inc.; the purchase price was not released. The acquisition will complement Zeiss’ microscopy business, which provides light and laser scanning microscopes, electron and ion microscopes, and spectrometer modules for research applications in the life and materials sciences. Adding 3-D imaging within objects at unprecedented resolution using x-ray microscopy will now be possible and will enable new applications and make the work flow in multimodal imaging easier, said Dr. Ulrich Simon, head of the Zeiss Microscopy business group. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including filing with the US competition authorities.
