3D X-ray Imaging in Life Science Research

Webinar | 27 June @ 2 pm CEST

Understanding physiological structure is at the core of many research questions in life science. Fluorescence microscopy is used to visualize specific, labelled structures and electron microscopy offers ultraresolution information of smaller regions. However, life scientists with a need to better understand anatomical structure in bulk samples have been increasingly turning to X-rays for their imaging needs. X-ray tomography captures larger volumes of structural information down to sub-micron resolution from samples ranging from millimeters to tens of centimeters in size. Specimens as varied as plant tissues, whole organisms, organs, mineralized and soft tissues can be imaged, and this approach is becoming a key technology for life scientists who need a broader picture of the anatomical structures they are investigating. Use X-ray tomography to study the internal histology of your specimens down to a cellular level, without destroying your sample with dissection.

Webinar Speakers

Webinar Presenter: Mohsen Samadi Khoshkhoo
Presenter Dr. Mohsen Samadi Khoshkhoo

Mohsen Samadi Khoshkhoo is a Business Development Manager at ZEISS for X-ray microscopy systems in the region Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). With his BSc and MSc in metallurgy he worked for a year in a steel company followed by a year in a materials and energy research center in Iran. In 2009 he joined to Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research in Dresden (IFW Dresden) and TU Dresden, where he conducted his PhD in Materials Science. Materials characterization was the core of his work at IFW where he dealt with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), in-situ SEM, X-ray line profile analysis, and time resolved synchrotron X-ray diffraction investigations. He has been a member of the ZEISS team since 2014.

Webinar Presenter: Stephen Kelly
Presenter Dr. Rosy Manser

Rosy is a Solution Manager at ZEISS Microscopy and became fascinated by microscopy during her PhD when she used confocal microscopes extensively to explore preimplantation embryo development. In 2008 Rosy joined ZEISS UK as an imaging specialist focusing on the laser-based 3D instruments including confocal, super resolution and lightsheet microscopy. Rosy took responsibility for the X-ray microscopy portfolio in the UK in 2015 and was immediately struck by the vast range of specimens that can be explored, particularly in biological research. Having progressed through a number of global roles, Rosy now works in the life science division as a solution manager where she supports the global ZEISS team in developing applications, sharing expertise and defining future requirements for the ZEISS portfolio of X-ray instruments.
