Imaging of Anti-Cancer Drug Uptake in Spheroids using DLS

Spheroid 3D cell culture models mimic the physiology and functions of living tissues making them a useful tool to study tumor morphology and screen anti-cancer drugs. The drug AZD2014 is a recognized…
Multicolor 3D imaging of live mammalian cell.

Expanding the Frontiers of Confocal Live Cell Imaging

Here we explore how STELLARIS unlocks the full power and potential of live cell studies by overcoming many common limitations and fully integrating fluorescence lifetime-based information to add a new…

Nanoscopy meets Lifetime: Introducing TauSTED

TauSTED combines the optical signals from STED and the photophysical information from the fluorescence lifetime at unprecedented speeds. This approach to STED uses phasor analysis in a novel way.…

How to Uncover Hidden Dimensions in Research with Lifetime Imaging

Learn how fluorescence lifetime imaging adds information depth to your confocal experiments and reveals novel insights that are difficult or impossible to discover using conventional intensity-based…
Fluorescence microscopy image on the left with no distinction between the fluorescent signal and background autofluorescence. FLIM was used in the image on the right to differentiate autofluorescence in chloroplasts (blue) from the desired fluorescent signal from the cell membrane (green).

Learn how to Remove Autofluorescence from your Confocal Images

Autofluorescence can significantly reduce what you can see in a confocal experiment. This article explores causes of autofluorescence as well as different ways to remove it, from simple media fixes to…
