Vibrational Spectroscopic Imaging in Cells, Tissues and Model Organisms

Here we present a webinar on the emerging applications of Stimulated Raman Scattering Microscopy, covering the following topics: Quantitative spectroscopic imaging of label-free or chemically tagged…

How to Prepare Samples for Stimulated Raman Scattering

Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) is an emerging microscopy technique that images the vibrations of chemical bonds within a specimen. It allows researchers to probe the endogenous chemistry or…

Step by Step Guide to the Molecular Basics of CARS Microscopy

CARS (Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering) microscopy is a dye-free method which images structures by displaying the characteristic intrinsic vibrational contrast of their molecules. The crucial…

Stimulated Raman Scattering Microscopy Probes Neurodegenerative Disease

Despite decades of research, the molecular mechanisms underlying some of the most severe neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, remain poorly understood. The progression of…

Kaggle Competition for Multi-label Classification of Cell Organelles in Proteome Scale Human Protein Atlas Data

The Cell Atlas, a part of the Human Protein Atlas, was created by the group of Prof. Emma Lundberg at the SciLifeLab, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, in Stockholm, Sweden. Currently, she is a…

Unmask the Hidden without Probes: CARS

Fluorescence microscopy assumed a pivotal role in cell biology once it was possible to stain cell components selectively by fluorescing dyes. One of the first explorers of targeted stainings, Paul…
