Electron Microscopy

Although almost a forgotten method, electron microscopy is a very important tool to assess changes in back of the eye cells and their contents. For this reason, electron microscopy is experiencing a renaissance. Pigments, for example, are comparably dense matter and show up remarkably differentiated under the electron microscope.

STZ OcuTox is among the leading units in the world regarding electron microscopy for ophthalmological use.
