Learn about and work on these systems

Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM & SMLM

Versatile platform for fast and gentle 3D superresolution

  • Investigate the Cellular Universe Right Down to Molecular Level
  • Reveal fine structural details while remaining free to label your samples with conventional dyes
  • Endogenously-expressed photo-switchable fluorescent proteins/organic dyes. Capture highly resolved structures of a whole cell in 3D in just one shot, while treating your sample so gently it stays fit for long-term observation
  • Reveal the ultra-structure of your object of interest, count molecules to quantify your results and see the arrangement of proteins within a structural context

Typical applications and samples:

Antibody stained tissue slices, Live cell culture, Live cells with multiple colors, Live or fixed cells with multiple labels and overlapping emission signals, Cellular structures with weak labels, Plant roots, Model organisms, e.g. Zebrafish, Drosophila or C.elegans

LSM 980 with Airyscan 2 Multiplex Mode

Scaling from 2D Cell Cultures to new 3D model system

  • Increase superresolution field-of-view and speeds (Upto 47 fps @512X512 resolution in SR mode)
  • Maintain improved optical sectioning performance of Airyscan with Multiplex
  • Provide superresolution at depth (upto 100 microns)
  • Maintain Airyscan SNR improvements over large volumes (4 to 8 times better SNR than LSM)

Typical applications and samples:

Live cell Imaging for moving organelles, vesicle trafficking, membrane reorganization, Fixed Samples, Large evolving organisms, such as Drosophila, C. elegans, Arabidopsis, Zebrafish, etc.

Axio Zoom.V16 with Apotome 2

Fluorescence zoom microscope for large fields

  • View complete organisms in fluorescence contrast
  • Combine a 16x zoom with a high numerical aperture of NA 0.25
  • Achieve a very high aperture in the medium zoom range: superior fluorescence brightness in large object fields
  • Use ApoTome.2 for fluorescence imaging to obtain optical sections 
  • Master routine screening as well as your most demanding multidimensional imaging applications

Typical applications and samples:

Drosophila embryo (fruit fly), Zebra fish embryo, Fixed tissue sections, e.g. brain, stomach, liver, skin, Plants, e.g. Arabidopsis, Nematode, C. elegans (worm), Fixed cells and cell layers, Live cell imaging (only slow processes)
