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.
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.
Zaw is a 3D Product Application and Sales Specialist supporting the Bay Area. He has eight years research experience in cell biology, microfabrication, and mechanobiology. Prior to joining ZEISS, he was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology at University College London studying cancer cell division in engineered microenvironments. Prior to that, he obtained his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota. His thesis work studied the function and mechanics of vascular smooth muscle. He obtained his BS in Chemical Engineering and Biochemistry from the University of Florida.
Prior to joining ZEISS, Benjamin Figueroa earned his PhD in Chemistry at the University of Washington developing new spectroscopy and multiphoton imaging techniques for understanding single cell metabolism and developing early disease diagnosis tools. Leveraging his expertise in physics, optics, and engineering, his work pushed the frontier of stimulated Raman microscopy as a state-of-the-art optical technique. Benjamin is on-site at your location frequently and is available to meet at your convenience.
