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

May 26, 2022 | 12 - 1 p.m.

Join the regional ZEISS Team for an on-site demo/workshop with the LSM 980 with Airyscan 2. This flagship confocal system, which always includes fully-integrated spectral modes, now features best-in-class detection capabilities extending into the near-infrared range (up to 900 nm). Easy and quantitative jumps to superresolution—whether with live or fixed specimens—are possible with the novel Airyscan 2 detector and its high-speed Airyscan Multiplex readout modes. The just-released Airyscan Joint Deconvolution processing toolkit further pushes these resolution gains down to 90 nm (in XY, 270 nm in Z) with minimal sample prep considerations. All hardware is centralized within the ZEN Blue software suite, with new options for AI-based sample detection, automated image analysis, and 3D analysis.
The seminar will take place in the Stanford Neuroscience Building, Room S170. Pizza and coffee will be provided!

Hands-on Demos

30-minute in-person demos will be available following the seminar on May 26, from 1:30-4 p.m. Note: only images acquired with LSM Zen Blue can be processed with LSM+ and those acquired with Airyscan SR mode can be processed with jDCV. Space is limited.


This seminar is presented by Zaw Win, Ph.D.

Product Applications Sales Specialist

Zaw is a 3D Product Application and Sales Specialist supporting the Bay Area. He has eight years of 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 Ph.D. 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.
