Carl Zeiss is one of the main drivers of innovation in research technology in Germany and indeed the entire world. A leading microscope manufacturer, the company offers solutions and services that provide inspiration for bio- and material sciences the world over. In life sciences research, for example, the finest details and subcellular structures of samples need to be measured, quantified and understood. In many cases, this work involves tissue, bacteria, organoids, neurons, living or fixed cells and numerous different markers. Zeiss has developed the Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM for these very challenges.

The innovative microscope is set to take researchers far beyond the diffraction limit of conventional microscopy, because the new technology means samples can now be imaged in superresolution. The Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM can be used to investigate the fastest of processes in living samples - with a large field of vision, in 3D, over long periods and in multiple colors. Zeiss intends to take structured illumination microscopy (SIM) to a whole new level thanks to the Elyra 7’s new lattice SIM technology. Groundbreaking light efficiency is designed to deliver superresolution images at the incredibly high speed of 255 frames per second to provide researchers with data faster than ever before.
