Correlative SEM-CLSM

Owing to ERC Calcyan, we have purchased a confocal laser scanning microscopy Zeiss LSM 710. The Zeiss Shuttle and Find module allows correlating CLSM and SEM images obtained on the very same cells. This has been pivotal in allowing us to understand how the viability of cells is linked with their ability to host intracellular CaCO3 inclusions as well as studying complex natural samples and detect/identify microorganisms hosting intracellular CaCO3.
