I was just wanted to inform everyone what was told to me yesterday by a
technician from Intergraphics. Zeiss/Intergraphics has stopped
producing and selling the high resolution film scanner that many of us
are still using to digitize our EM film (SCAI , Photoscan 2000). They
installed their final one last week. If you have one and are still
using it take care of it. I am sure that as time goes on that support
for this discontinued device will disappear in the near future as well.
Many people are switching to CCD data collection but there are still
some who believe in the efficiency and resolving power of EM film.
Since there are many young investigators setting up labs for
macromolecular imaging it may be an appropriate time to survey the 3DEM
community as to the alternatives for digitization. Thanks.
