ZOYC Online

ZEISS On Your Campus (ZOYC) Online is comprised of a live online webinar with your local account team.

ZOYC Online has three main goals:
1. Provide education focused on better utilization of your current microscopy equipment, which can lead to:

  • Higher quality imaging and faster time to results
  • A better understanding of the data that are collected
  • Improved experimental design

2. Bring awareness of new and emerging microscopy trends and technologies.

3. Connect live with your local ZEISS account team.

This live event is presented by your local ZEISS team

Meet Chris Bjornsson

Christopher Bjornsson, Ph.D.
3D LS Product Applications Sales Specialist

Chris Bjornsson joined ZEISS three years ago and has served as a Field Application Specialist supporting the Mid-Atlantic region before joining the Northeast PASS team. Prior to joining ZEISS, he was a research scientist with the Neural Stem Cell Institute in Rensselaer, NY, where he studied the interplay between neural stem cells and the choroid plexus in the context of aging. Previously, Chris served as the Director of several Core Facilities for the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Chris obtained his doctoral thesis in Zoology at the University of Manitoba. His postdoctoral work brought him to the Wadsworth Center in Albany, NY, where he pursued research characterizing the biological responses to chronically implanted brain microelectrodes.

LSM 980 with Airyscan 2 Your Next Generation Confocal for Fast and Gentle Multiplex Imaging

April 9, 2020 | 1:00 pm EDT

The LSM 9 family with Airyscan 2 from ZEISS enables the perfect balance of speed and resolution for today’s confocal-imaging needs. The new Multiplex mode extends sensitive Airyscan imaging to larger model systems with low expression levels by increasing acquisition speeds even further while reducing the illumination dosage to the sample. This novel concept allows rapid volumetric imaging with unprecedented resolution beyond what is available in traditional confocal systems today.

Join this webinar and learn how the ZEISS LSM 9 series with Airyscan 2 can help you:

  • Capture weaker signals—and still get sound, reproducible data
  • Achieve faster volumetric imaging without sacrificing resolution
  • Increase data throughput for your imaging needs
  • Improve your productivity through efficient software features

Celldiscoverer 7 Automated Platform for Live Cell Imaging

April 22, 2020 | 10:00 am EDT

The Celldiscoverer 7 platform from ZEISS combines the easy-to-use automation of a boxed microscope with the image quality and flexibility of a classic inverted research microscope. Celldiscoverer 7 calibrates itself, then detects and focuses on your samples while the optics adjust themselves. Whether working with 2D or 3D cell cultures, tissue sections or small model organisms, you will acquire better data in shorter times with this reliable automated research platform. What’s more, you can enhance your Celldiscoverer 7 with optical sectioning to get more information from your three-dimensional samples. It’s your choice whether you opt for confocal imaging with LSM 900 and Airyscan 2 or fast GPU deconvolution.

Join this webinar to learn how Celldiscoverer 7 can help you:

  • Image well plate assays with fixed and live cells
  • Increase your throughput with automation
  • Reproducibly and consistently collect the data you need

ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM Revealing the Fastest Processes in Superresolution

May 12, 2020 | 11:00 am EDT

ZEISS Elyra 7 takes your images beyond the diffraction limit of conventional microscopy to superresolution. Lattice SIM enables fast imaging of 3D volumes with resolution down to 120 nm laterally and 300 nm axially. Due to higher light efficiency, the new Lattice SIM technology provides gentle superresolution imaging of living specimens at up to 255 frames per second. Using less light to illuminate the specimen means imaging longer with less bleaching of the sample. The SIM-Apotome mode allows superfast optical sectioning of 3D samples at a variety of magnifications and single molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) techniques such as PALM, dSTORM and PAINT can be utilized to achieve resolution down to 20 nm laterally and 50 nm axially.

Join this webinar and learn how the ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM can help you:

  • Examine the fastest processes in living samples – in large fields of view, in 3D, gently over long time periods, and with multiple colors
  • Resolve molecular structures in 3D with single molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) using techniques such as PALM, dSTORM, and PAINT
  • Achieve rapid optical sectioning of large volumes from low to high magnification
