Discovering the subcellular dynamics of life with ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7

Our ZEISS On Your Campus (ZOYC) roadshow is touring the country with our ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7.  This event will provide turnkey access to gentle imaging provided by lattice light-sheet technology. This initiative is specifically geared to provide you with the opportunity to image your most delicate samples in your local community.
Did you know that traditional imaging techniques can influence the behavior of specimens due to phototoxicity, thus affecting the integrity of the results? In order to best understand the world around us it is necessary to observe microscopic specimens in as natural a state as possible. This requires a transition from imaging fixed to live specimens and expanding from 2D to 3D model organisms.
The drive towards live-cell imaging over long timeframes and at high volume speeds, while maintaining sub-cellular resolution, brings new challenges. Challenges which can be addressed by utilizing lattice light-sheet technology. Traditionally utilized live cell imaging techniques such as classical widefield, confocal and spinning disk methods expose the sample to light both at the focal plane of interest and above and below it. With light-sheet microscopy light exposure is minimized by illuminating only the focal plane of interest. Lattice light-sheets are long thin light-sheets which minimize phototoxicity, improve signal to noise and deliver subcellular resolution. With the gentleness  of lattice light-sheet microscopy it is possible to capture dynamics at previously unreachable combinations of acquisition speed and resolution over hours and even days.
This talk will describe how the ZEISS Lattice Lighsheet 7 makes long-term volumetric imaging of living cells with subcellular resolution possible without having to change your standard sample preparation protocols to accommodate the instrument. With automatic alignment and easy acquisition workflows,  lattice light-sheet imaging is now as accessible as using a standard inverted microscope.
Join us for a hybrid presentation to learn how ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7 allows you to discover the subcellular dynamics of life.


There will be a hybrid presentation hosted at UC Berkeley in Room 177 Weill Hall, and virtually on GoToWebinar for those who cannot attend in person. Webinar details will be provided via email after you register below.  

Coffee and refreshments will be provided.

Brian Schmidt

Your Local Account Manager

Brian is an Account Manager supporting the Bay Area. Prior to joining ZEISS, he was a Laboratory Manager for 12 years at the Universities of California – Davis,  Wisconsin – Madison, and Minnesota – Twin Cities. During his time at UC Davis, he studied vaccine development and immunology in emergent viral diseases using non-human primate and mouse models. In Wisconsin, his focus was live cell time lapse imaging and electrophysiology focused on mouse metabolic disease models. He obtained his BS in Molecular Biology from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities where his research focused on craniofacial development in model systems.
