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.
James completed his undergraduate degree at McGill University and went on to receive his Ph.D. at University of Toronto in Biochemistry. He stumbled into to the world of microscopy through luck by joining Dr. Christopher Yip’s lab as one of the first graduate students in Canada integrating Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) with Confocal. They worked on correlative studies with various biological model systems. He then went on to spend three years in postdoctoral studies in Alzheimer’s drug development, also at University of Toronto. He then made the switch to industry joining Bruker Nano Surface as a Bio Sales Application Engineer based in Philadelphia, PA. At Bruker he transitioned into several positions including lead Bio Application Test Engineer for the development of Bruker’s next generation Bio AFM base in Santa Barbara, CA. His most recent position in Industry was with Bitplane/Imaris where he was their southeast regional sales engineer supporting 3D/4D image data visualization and analysis software in metro Washington, DC area. Over the years, he has enjoyed the interactions with his fellow scientists/customers the most, as a part of his day-to-day job, and joins the ZEISS team where he will have plenty of those wonderful interactions with customers and colleagues.
