This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 867667.
OUR MISSIONImproving the quality of research by providing technology allowing direct correlation of data.
OUR VISIONGathering correlated information from any characterization device to provide undisputed data which makes clear-cut conclusions.

WHAT IS CORRESCOPY?Microscopy and spectroscopy are essential techniques used in many types of scientific research and industrial applications. Nowadays, the information about a single sample is collected by a number of different microscopes or spectroscopes in order to gather all required information. However, the information received from the same sample is not the information originating from exactly the same location or feature of that sample. Data collected in such a way is further analyzed and correlated, however lack of overlapping information from the same location brings a question about the correlation of the collected data. Moreover, the results are often questioned by scientific reviewers. Correlative microscopy is conventionally related strictly to correlation of the information gathered from two microscopes from exactly the same location of sample (e.g. a cell), usually: a light microscope (LM) and a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Many manufacturers of microscopes of spectroscopes often offer very sophisticated equipment allowing such correlation, requiring high equipment investment. However, that information is often not enough to characterize and describe the sample of interest sufficiently. There is an increasing need for real correlative microscopy (correscopy) which allows to characterize exactly the same sample on any characterization device (by more than 2 or 3 techniques).
WHAT DO WE DO?Correscopy provides correscopy! A set of tools* that makes possible to characterize exactly the same region of interest of the sample on any microscope or spectroscope even if the device was not prepared for it by a manufacturer. Correscopy provides undisputed data which makes your clear-cut conclusions.
HOW CAN YOU DO CORRESCOPY?
