GridTape: cutting the cost of serial section Transmission Electron Microscopy systems

GridTape is part of a new system for serial section transmission electron microscopy imaging which excels at high-throughput low-cost nanometer-scale transmission of large volumes. And it’s cheap, for the current price of a comparable multi-beam SEM system, ten grid-tape TEM systems can be built. At first glance the cost sheet looks imposing, but it contains […]

DIY Fluorescence Smartphone Microscopy

We’ve covered several portable microscopy setups before, including Foldscope, wooden scope, and our favorite these little UV magnifiers. We like the latter so much because it is capable of both white light, and UV light, and we found we were capable of doing a little bit of fluorescence microscopy on it. That’s where a 2017 […]
