Zeiss Light and Electron Microscopy Combined in New Business Group

By Labmedica International staff writers
Posted on 28 Nov 2011
The Carl Zeiss Group (Gottingen, Germany) has launched a new microscopy business group that combines microimaging and nanotechnology systems. In the future, the company will be the world's only supplier to offer one-stop, innovative systems, and solutions for light and electron microscopy.

Customers are increasingly using both systems and want integrated software and workflow solutions. The combination of Carl Zeiss MicroImaging and Nanotechnology Systems into one business group fully reflects this trend.

"By fusing the two worlds of microscopy, we are opening up totally new perspectives to our customers in science and industry," says Dr. Ulrich Simon, head of Carl Zeiss Microscopy. "Carl Zeiss has been a pioneer in this field for more than 160 years. Carl Zeiss and Ernst Abbe together invented scientific microscopy more than 160 years ago. Since then, the company has constantly played a crucial role in shaping the progress of this technology. We are now opening an exciting new chapter in this success story."

The potential offered by combining light and electron microscopy is illustrated by Prof. Jeff Lichtman of Harvard University (Cambridge, MA, USA), who is pioneering brain mapping with light and electron microscopy by generating three-dimensional maps of the brain.

Competition is increasing all over the world: microscopy is a fast-growing market because it is increasingly developing into a basic technology that is now firmly established in many different fields. It is a market that is characterized by big providers and small specialists for specific technologies. The new Carl Zeiss Microscopy business group combines two strengths: it has the right size to carry clout and offers technological expertise covering the entire microscopy process.
