Correlative cryo-FIB milling strategies using METEOR, an integrated fluorescent light microscope

METEOR is a fluorescent light microscope that is directly integrated in the cryogenic focus ion beam/scanning electron microscope (cryo-FIB/SEM) chamber allowing researchers to streamline their correlative cryo-FIB milling. Read the white paper where we discuss three different correlative cryo-FIB milling strategies using METEOR. We present test cases and provide guidelines for when to use which strategy.
