3D tissue imaging is used by researchers to reveal detailed information of tissue composition and integrity. One early challenge of this type of imaging is to get a first glimpse of the sample with a microscope. What you see at first is only a very small section of the total sample volume and it can therefore be cumbersome to keep the sample in good focus and find the right position.
Mica’s Sample Finder automates the process by bringing the sample in focus and generating a low magnification overview of each relevant area that can then be used for orientation throughout the complete imaging workflow. Here we explore how Mica helps researchers do 3D tissue imaging.
