Carl Zeiss VivaTome Wins R+D100 Award

Carl Zeiss MicroImaging, a leading provider of microscopy solutions, accepted an award from the R&D 100 in the category of Imaging Technologies for their product the VivaTome. The award was presented on November 11, 2010 during the R&D 100 annual ceremony in Orlando, Florida.

The R&D 100 awards recognize the top technology products of the year in subjects ranging from new materials, chemistry breakthroughs, biomedical products, and high-energy physics. Recipients of the awards work in industry, academia, and government.

Carl Zeiss accepted the award in recognition of the live cell imaging system, the VivaTome. This product was co-developed with Aurox Ltd. The VivaTome, which is based on the principle of aperture correlation, incorporates structured illumination microscopy with the speed of a spinning disk. The result is an economic solution for biomedical researchers interested in examining dynamic processes in living cells and organisms.

"Making a complex imaging technology easy to use for live cell observations was our defined focus", says Dr. Matthias Langhorst, product manager at Carl Zeiss MicroImaging. "Receiving the R&D award for the VivaTome show that the intense discussions between Aurox Ltd and Carl Zeiss during the design phase clearly paid off."
