Benefits and Comparison

Welcome to the Comparison page for High-Resolution Episcopic Microscopy (HREM) by Indigo Scientific. Here, we provide a comparison to other imaging techniques, highlighting its unique advantages and capabilities. As a leading provider of HREM solutions, Indigo Scientific understands the importance of choosing the right microscopy method for your research needs. Through this comparison, we aim to shed light on how HREM stands out from traditional microscopy techniques, such as confocal microscopy, electron microscopy, and light sheet microscopy. Explore the detailed breakdown of features, resolution, imaging depth, sample preparation, and more to gain a comprehensive understanding of why HREM is a powerful tool in unravelling the complexities of biological specimens. Make informed decisions about your imaging approach and discover why researchers worldwide choose Indigo Scientific for their HREM needs.

Aligned Images

HREM Images are aligned naturally due to images being captured from the block face. Making a 3D data set easily obtainable by just inverting the LUT of the specimen.

No Sample Clearing

HREM Does not require clearing of samples, unlike LSM (light sheet microscopy). Dense tissue is easily imaged on small or larger samples 30mm and larger down to 1mm with sub micron resolution.

Highly Detail Images

The morphology is preserved very well and is captured and observed in  high contrast "real" images 2D and 3D stacks/models, in model measurements are easy, through many popular software packages

Cost Efficient

HREM is cost efficient with base models starting below the cost of similar specification slide scanners. Resultant images will give great images for a considerably lower cost to alternative methods, such as Light Sheet and Micro CT.
