- The "ideal microscopic platform" is a systems that combines the advantages of both Light Microscopy (LM) and Electron Microscopy (EM).
In his talk Prof. Tanke will discuss strategies for choosing the right technique, illustrated by a number of research applications including: Time-lapse LM imaging, CW-STED, Cryo-EM tomography and CLEM.
His team has developed hardware to perform fluorescence microscopy under cryo conditions, devices to quickly move from LM to EM and sample preparation methods for CLEM.
