  • Multiphoton Microscopy – a Satisfied Wish List

    The colorful picture shows colon tumor cells, fluorescently labelled and lineage traced from a multicolor tracer. The gray color codes for the second harmonic generation (SHG) signal from Collagen 1. Lineage traced tumor cells are shown in magenta, blue, green, yellow and red. All channels were recorded with two-photon excitation, using the SP8 DIVE by Leica Microsystems. Sample and image were kindly provided by J. van Rheenen, H. Snippert, Utrecht (the Nederlands,) and I. Steinmetz, Leica Microsystems Mannheim.

  • Quick Guide to STED Sample Preparation

    This document is intended as a quick reference guide for the most common questions regarding the preparation of samples for the Leica SP8 TCS STED 3X, by briefly explaining the theoretical basics required from samples for stimulated emission depletion. It provides information about the most common immuno-fluorescence labeling techniques, working mounting media, basic quality optimization procedures and experiment designs. It also contains a detailed list of reagents, antibodies and disposables frequently and successfully used in super-resolution STED microscopy. In summary, this guide is meant to present the necessary knowledge, including some tips and tricks, to users that are preparing their first super-resolution microscopy sample.
