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

Hosted by Dale Hailey, Ph.D., Director of the Garvey Imaging Lab, University of Washington

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 22, 2022 | 1:00 pm PDT

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 seminar, 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.

Location: Orin Smith Auditorium, 850 Republican St, Seattle, WA 98109. This presentation will also be broadcast live through GoToWebinar. By registering, you will automatically receive the webinar link. 

In-Person Demos

Hands-on demos will be available at the University of Washington from June 27 - July 1, 2022. Space is limited.

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

Product Application 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.

This seminar is hosted by Andrew Hill, Ph.D.

Account Manager

Andrew earned his Ph.D. in Materials Science at Montana State University, where his thesis research involved the development and application of new transient absorption microscopy methodologies to study charge carrier transport and recombination in emerging photovoltaic media. Prior to joining ZEISS Microscopy, Andrew worked at the University of Washington as a postdoctoral researcher where his studies focused on the nonlinear microscopic characterization (transient absorption, two-photon fluorescence, and stimulated Raman scattering) of biological samples and the development of new nonlinear optical methodologies. Andrew has a passion for optical spectroscopy and microscopic imaging and he looks forward to meeting with you, becoming more acquainted with your research, and discussing how ZEISS might support that research in the future.
