Tamara Straube , PhD

Tamara Straube

Tamara Straube studied Human Biology at the Philipps-University Marburg and graduated in 2009. During her PhD thesis at the Department of Cytobiology and Cytopathology in Marburg she worked on protein trafficking in polarized epithelial cells and human kidney cancer and gained experience in TIRF, confocal and GSDIM microscopy. Afterwards she coordinated the Bioimaging Facility of the SFB593 at the Philipps-University Marburg. Since July 2013 she has employed by Leica Microsystems as an Application Manager for the Leica SR GSD.

Practical Guide for Excellent GSDIM Super-Resolution Images

Do you know that most protists and bacteria lack in one feature that each of our body cell has? Our cells are touch and communicate with one another. They send and receive a variety of signals that…

Image Gallery: Application Options with Leica DM2500 LED Microscope

The number of applications in microscopy can be as manifold as life itself. Different specimens demand different contrast methods to get a decent result. Unstained cells normally do not show a very…

Quantifying the Resolution of a Leica SR GSD 3D Localization Microscopy System with 2D and 3D Nanorulers

DNA origami based nanorulers produced by GATTAquant are common standards to test the achievable spatial resolution of super-resolution microscopes. Recently the nanorulers were used to test the…

How to do a Proper Cell Culture Quick Check

In order to successfully work with mammalian cell lines, they must be grown under controlled conditions and require their own specific growth medium. In addition, to guarantee consistency their growth…

Three-Dimensional Super-Resolution GSDIM Microscopy

With the new 3D GSDIM technique structures like the Golgi and the microtubular network are resolved not only laterally, but also in a third dimension. The principle is based on the use of optical…

Super-Resolution GSDIM Microscopy

The nanoscopic technique GSDIM (ground state depletion microscopy followed by individual molecule return) provides a detailed image of the spatial arrangement of proteins and other biomolecules within…
