Inspect3D™ post alignment and reconstruction software provides a fast, easy, complete solution for dual- and single axis electron tomography.


  • Cross-correlation requires no markers as the process is enhanced by the use of a large variety of filters and image processing tools.
  • Feature tracking can utilize added artificial features like gold markers, or recognizable intrinsic specimen features, as a basis for image alignment.
  • Bead cloaking removes gold beads from the image data after they have been used for alignment so they do not show in the reconstruction. 
  • The algebraic reconstruction technique iteratively compares projections of the reconstruction to the original projections and corrects the reconstruction to minimize differences.
  • The simultaneous iterative reconstruction technique preserves full spatial information and can enhance the signal to noise ratio of the reconstruction.

2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Three scientists; Dr. Jacques Dubochet, Dr. Joachim Frank, and Dr. Richard Henderson, were awarded the prize for their developments within Cryo-Electron Microscopy.

We are extremely proud of what these researchers and the structural biology community have achieved.
