A decade can make a big difference when it comes to #microscopy technology! Since the introduction of the FV1000 confocal laser scanning microscope and its successor, the FV3000, our philosophy has been the same: To enhance your research and meet the demands of modern science.

No, these are not feathers. They are actually dryas octopetala seeds that form small, white flowering evergreen shrubs commonly found in arctic climates.
