Jeol USA, Peabody, Mass., introduces a new benchtop SEM, the JSM-6000Plus, the third generation of the NeoScope, which delivers fast, high-magnification electron microscopy with more functionality than typical benchtop SEMs. The simplicity of design with touchscreen operation make the NeoScope an ergonomic, easy-to-operate SEM for rapid inspection of electronics and a wide variety of materials and organic samples. This model offers high sensitivity backscatter electron detection with a Jeol BSE detector to detect contrast between areas of the sample with different chemical compositions. The instrument makes it possible to bring basic high resolution imaging and analysis features of a full-sized scanning electron microscope into the lab. It fits into both small spaces and economical budgets, and its simple operation and versatile functions complement the workflow with optical microscopes or larger SEMs. Jeol understands that even the smallest microscope needs the flexibility of selectable high and low kV, selectable beam currents, and up to 60,000X magnification to be a valuable resource. The Jeol NeoScope is the culmination of more than 50 years of expertise in SEM development and is supported by its award-winning service organization. The NeoScope is available exclusively from Nikon Metrology Inc., a leading supplier of optical microscopes, through a business alliance between Jeol and Nikon.

Objectives Congenital cardiac malformations are commonly identified at perinatal autopsy, which can be challenging in fetuses of early gestation and in macerated fetuses. Our objective was to examine fetal complex congenital heart disease by microcomputed tomography (micro-CT), using standard autopsy as the gold standard. Methods In this ethically approved study, ex-vivo isolated fetal heart and fetal heart-lung blocks underwent iodine preparation prior to micro-CT, and were fixed in formalin after the micro-CT examination. Images were acquired using a microfocus-CT scanner with individual specimen image optimization. Twenty-one indices assessed normally at autopsy were evaluated for each dataset. Cardiac dissection was performed using a dissecting microscope within 24 h of the micro-CT examination. Results We examined six fetal hearts, comprising five with complex congenital cardiac malformations at a gestational age of 17-23 weeks and an anatomically normal heart of 23 weeks' gestation for reference. All specimens demonstrated excellent internal contrast at micro-CT examination, and the correct overall diagnosis was made in all cases. There was agreement for 114/126 indices assessed on micro-CT and at autopsy dissection (overall concordance of 95.8% (95% CI, 90.5-98.2%)). Micro-CT was particularly useful in the assessment of ventricular morphology in macerated fetuses. Conclusions Micro-CT of small ex-vivo fetal specimens can provide highly accurate three-dimensional rendering of complex congenital fetal heart disease. This approach represents a significant advance in postmortem imaging and confirms the potential of this technology for non-invasive examination of small fetuses and organs. © Copyright 2015 ISUOG.

Working on the hypothesis that an important function of the lamellate antennae of adult male beetles belonging to the genus Rhipicera is to detect scent associated with female conspecifics, and using field observations, anatomical models derived from X-ray microcomputed tomography, and scanning electron microscopy, we have investigated the behavioral, morphological, and morphometric factors that may influence molecule capture by these antennae. We found that male beetles fly upwind in a zigzag manner, or face upwind when perching, behavior consistent with an animal that is tracking scent. Furthermore, the ultrastructure of the male and female antennae, like their gross morphology, is sexually dimorphic, with male antennae possessing many more of a particular type of receptor-the sensillum placodeum-than their female counterparts (approximately 30,000 vs. 100 per antenna, respectively). Based on this disparity, we assume that the sensilla placodea on the male antennae are responsible for detecting scent associated with female Rhipicera beetles. Molecule capture by male antennae in their alert, fanned states is likely to be favoured by: (a) male beetles adopting prominent, upright positions on high points when searching for scent; (b) the partitioning of antennae into many small segments; (c) antennal morphometry (height, width, outline area, total surface area, leakiness, and narrow channels); (d) the location of the sensilla placodea where they are most likely to encounter odorant molecules; and (e) well dispersed sensilla placodea. The molecule-capturing ability of male Rhipicera antennae may be similar to that of the pectinate antennae of certain male moths.

The investigation of high-density surface-mount devices has been made easier with new techniques and equipment that allow an individual to correlate findings from one instrument to another; from optical to X-ray and CT to SEM. Add to that improved ease of use and automation and the individual can focus on being an investigator rather than an instrument or process specialist.

The Nikon Metrology Laser Radar system focuses a beam from a fiber to a target object and receives the light scattered from the target through the same fiber. The system can, among other things, make highly accurate measurements of the position of a tooling ball by locating the angular position of peak signal quality, which is related to the fiber coupling efficiency. This article explores the relationship between fiber coupling efficiency and focus condition. © 2015 SPIE.
