Day 1 - Advances in Confocal Microscopy : Breaking the Diffraction Limit

August 24, 2021

Overview

Confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) is the recognized standard for 3D fluorescence microscopy. It combines excellent optical sectioning performance with flexible scanning strategies for imaging and photomanipulation, making it the method of choice for a vast range of applications.

Next generation CLSM would need to provide a balanced and flexible combination of :

  • Image quality (SNR) to identify and localize biological molecules of interest while minimizing input of light. ( less phototoxicity) ,
  • Speed to monitor these molecules and their interactions in space and time, and
  • High resolution to image intracellular structures with sufficient detail in X-Y-Z.
Key Takeaways
 
  • LSM technology combined with SR technique is a perfect fit for fixed and live cell imaging
  • Airyscan Multiplex SR technology improves speed, sensitivity and resolution.
  • Multiplex Mode of Airyscan allows gentle fast SR imaging options for various samples

Day 2 - Advances in Lattice Technologies for Fluorescence Live Imaging

August 25, 2021

Overview

Lattice light-sheet microscopy and Lattice Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM) are the two recent technical advances in fluorescent microscopy. Both technologies are continuously pushing the boundaries of what is possible for live-cell imaging. Lattice light-sheet microscopy extends the fast and gentle imaging capability of light-sheet to the subcellular structures; while Lattice SIM brings super-resolution to an unprecedented level of speed and sensitivity. In this webinar, we will discuss the hardware/software implementation of both Lattice technologies, their unique features, and the suitable application

Key Takeaways

  • Lattice technology is a perfect fit for live cell imaging
  • Lattice technology improves speed, sensitivity and resolution
  • Commercial implementation of Lattice technology makes it easy to use

Day 3 - Guided Volume Scanning Electron Microscopy Through Correlative Microscopy

August 26, 2021

Overview

Electron microscopy imaging has been used as a valuable research tool in the Life Sciences for many years. From research of single cell organisms, viruses or eukaryotic cells to identification of synaptic contacts between neurons, the ability to image biological samples in nanometer resolution has proven to be extremely valuable.

The majority of these examples has been studied using the well-established Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) technique.
Recent developments in Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) has shown to meet the resolution and imaging quality of thin section preparation of heavy-metal and resin embedded biological specimens. Furthermore, SEM systems offer intuitive, customizable and highly automated workflows which saves time and improves experiment success rates. Based on sample block-face scanning in combination with milling (e.g. Focused Ion Beam (FIB)), SEM enables dramatic resolution improvements in the third dimension above what is possible with TEM. 

Furthermore, SEM offers large field of view imaging of organs and whole organisms and hence facilitates applications that have previously been unachievable in the lab.

In addition, 3D SEM techniques are highly automated and offer easy to conduct workflows for correlative studies using light and/or X-Ray microscopy.
