Image Registration

All AZtec acquired images can be used for specimen navigation and relocation

  • AZtec takes control of the microscope stage and seamlessly relocates to points of interest
  • During a session, any acquired image or map is automatically registered, enabling easy relocation to previously analysed areas
  • Any image can be used for navigation i.e. an X-ray map can be used to navigate to an area rich in a particular element
  • Manually registering images enables specific areas of a specimen to be further investigated at a later date, even on another microscope
