Tandem scanning microscope--a new tool for three-dimensional microanatomy

Prog Clin Biol Res. 1989;295:551-8.


Tandem Scanning Microscope enables us to observe in real time one thin layer under the surface of a highly complex semitransparent object (e. g. living tissue), make photographs of thick layers in such objects and observe (by means of a stereoscope) three dimensional images of such objects. Important results can be obtained with moderate expenditure on basic hardware and the equipment can be expanded steadily according to the state of our budget.
