Join us for an introductory webinar and schedule an in-person demo

Hosted by Paula Montero Llopis, Ph.D., Core Director of the MicRoN facility, Harvard Medical School

Our ZEISS On Your Campus (ZOYC) roadshow is touring the country with our ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM2. This event will provide easy access to unprecedented resolution in live samples without the need for special sample preparation. This initiative is specifically geared to provide you the opportunity to image your most delicate samples in your local community.


Reveal the vibrant sub-organelle network of life with ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM²

June 15, 2021 | 2:00 pm EDT

Have you ever wished it would be possible to achieve sub-100 nm resolution in living samples without having to adapt your sample preparation to fit the imaging method?

Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM) has become a go-to super-resolution fluorescence microscopy technique for live imaging due to its comparatively gentle illumination and compatibility with standard fluorophores. The introduction of Lattice SIM extended live imaging capabilities even further by increasing gentleness and achievable frame rates; however, the resolution remained a two-fold improvement over the diffraction limit (~120 nm laterally and 300 nm axially).

Join us to learn how the new ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM2 extends the spatial and temporal resolution capability of SIM beyond what was previously possible allowing you to achieve 60 nm resolution laterally and axial sectioning beyond 200 nm. Lattice SIM2 opens the door to formerly unattainable applications by enabling the observation of rapid sub-organelle structural changes and inter-organelle interactions without the need to modify your standard sample preparation protocols.

In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Discriminate sub-organelle structures down to 60 nm without the need for special sample preparation or expert knowledge of complex techniques
  • Capture highly dynamic processes at up to 255 fps
  • Optimize resolution and sectioning with a variety of magnifications on samples ranging from photo-sensitive cell cultures to scattering C. elegans, plants and tissue sections using one versatile imaging platform.


This webinar is presented by Tanay Desai, Ph.D.

Product Application Sales Specialist

Tanay joined ZEISS as an Imaging Specialist in 2016 and in his role covers NY, NJ, PA and CT. Prior to his time with ZEISS, he was a post-doctoral fellow at Emory University, where he worked on imaging, assay-design and biophysical approaches to the study of viral entry and cellular entry mechanisms. He received his doctorate from the University of Maryland in Biophysics and Biochemistry, with a focus on protein folding mechanisms and spectroscopy.

This webinar is hosted by Chris Bjornsson, Ph.D.

Product Application 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.
