The two talks of this webinar are focussed on the practical advantages of this technique for a precise and contamination-free isolation and selection of single cells from brain sections for RNA downstream analysis and afterwards on cloning live cells from cultures for further cultivation and analysis. Laser microdissection is a microscope-controlled manipulation technique for the precise separation of samples using a guided focused laser beam.
In the coming years, considerable effort and resources will be directed at understanding the neural connections of the brain. During this webinar, we will examine many of the tools being used to study how neurons interact with one another at their synapses.
Electron microscopy only captures a static image of a cell. What is the cell doing? What is the true sequence of events in a cellular process? We can make flip books from our micrographs that tell a story, but their arrangement can be influenced by the story we want to tell.
Ergonomic workstations improve more than comfort – they improve the overall wellbeing of the work force. With a few simple adjustments and the right equipment to provide better posture, microscope users can dramatically increase productivity, focus, and efficiency on the job, while reducing health issues in both the short and long term.
Sample Preparation is a prerequisite for microscopy. It’s essential for achieving accurate and reproducible results. To get the best results in interfacial characterization, Leica Microsystems developed a triple ion beam cutting technique for electron microscopy observation. This technique is integrated into the ion beam slope cutter Leica EM TIC 3X and optimizes the processing conditions of sample preparation to reveal the nano-sized interfacial features of the specimen.
In this webinar, Daniel Choquet, Xiaowei Zhuang, and Stephan Sigrist will discuss how super-resolution imaging can elucidate the inner workings of neurons at the single-molecule and macro-molecular levels using specialized probes and optical techniques they have helped design and pioneer in the field of neuroscience.
Cleanliness analysis using the microscope and software is increasingly important for quality assurance in a wide range of industries, including automotive and transportation. Cleanliness analysis can enhance productivity using a high quality microscope and software that reports to user-specifications or common standards such as ISO 16232 or VDA 19.
This webinar will highlight ground-breaking techniques in microscopy. Two scientists will present the impressive results they have achieved using confocal and widefield 3D super-resolution methods. Dr. Timo Zimmermann, Head of the Advanced Light Microscopy Unit,
CRG – Centre for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona, Spain, will present biological applications for the next generation of STED microscopy systems. Dr. Eric Hosy from CNRS, University of Bordeaux, France, will talk about live cell localization microscopy with Leica SR GSD 3D.
Imaging is one of the key technologies for Biomedical research. In many cases it is useful to obtain data from different imaging modalities. Especially combining 2 techniques in one single experiment, so-called Correlative Microscopy, can and should give a better answer than each technique alone. 1 + 1 = 3.
