In this episode of MicaCam, our hosts Lynne Turnbull and Patric Pelzer will take you on a journey through the history of staining biological samples. They will explain why you typically have to make a choice to either use a system for histology or for fluorescent samples and how you can overcome this with the new imaging technique – FluoSync.

MicaCam is where life science researchers come together live to chat, interact, and make discoveries together. Share your questions and engage during the livestream. 
Join us, and your life science research community, for short demonstrations of how Mica radically simplifies your workflows.

Dr. Lynne Turnbull

Principal Scientist - Leica Labs @ EMBL Imaging Center

Lynne is a Principal Scientist at Leica Microsystems. She received her PhD in Sydney Australia in cardiac biophysics and undertook postdoctoral training in San Francisco and Melbourne. Lynne’s research interests shifted to bacterial biofilms and motility, and she used different types of imaging to explore and understand how bacteria build communities and move through their environment. Upon moving to the University of Technology Sydney, Lynne established and managed the Microbial Imaging Facility. Lynne joined GE in 2016 to provide application support throughout Asia for super resolution microscopy. Since 2021 Lynne has been with Leica Microsystems based in the labs at the EMBL Imaging Center in Heidelberg.

Dr. Patric Pelzer

Product Manager – Leica Microsystems

Patric studied Biology and Neuroscience at the University of Cologne, Germany. From Cologne he moved on to Heidelberg to study the characteristics of a defined synapse participating in the processing of olfaction in the mouse brain as a PhD thesis. He employed behavioral conditioning, patch clamping, and immunohistology in conjunction with widefield and confocal microscopy. After a postdoc, Patric joined Leica Microsystems’ product management team in 2017.
