FluoSync - a Fast & Gentle Method for Unmixing Multicolour Images

In this white paper, we focus on a fast and reliable method for obtaining high-quality multiplex images in fluorescence microscopy. FluoSync combines an existing method for hybrid unmixing with…

Harnessing Microfluidics to Maintain Cell Health During Live-Cell Imaging

VIDEO ON DEMAND - In this episode of MicaCam, we will use microfluidics to explore the effect of shear stress on cell morphology, examine the effect of nutrient replenishment on cellular growth during…
Living HeLa cells stained with WGA-488 (yellow), SPY-Actin (cyan), and SiR-Tubulin (magenta). Instant Computational Clearing (ICC) was applied.

How to Perform Dynamic Multicolor Time-Lapse Imaging

Live-cell imaging sheds light on diverse cellular events. As many of these events have fast dynamics, the microscope imaging system must be fast enough to record every detail. One major advantage of…
Two-color caspase assay with tile scan. U2OS cells were treated with the nuclear marker DRAQ5 (magenta) and CellEvent™ (yellow).

Following Multiple Events during Staurosporine Apoptosis

VIDEO ON DEMAND - In this episode of MicaCam, we show how adding additional markers to an apoptosis kit can markedly increase the amount of information a researcher can obtain from the same…
Untreated Hela Kyoto cells stained to show the nucleus (Hoechst, blue), the cis-golgi matrix protein GM130 (AF488, green), and the trans-golgi network membrane protein TGN46 (AF647, red).

Golgi Organizational Changes in Response to Cell Stress

VIDEO ON DEMAND - In this episode of MicaCam, our special guest George Galea from EMBL Heidelberg will look at HeLa Kyoto cells treated with various chemotherapeutic agents to investigate their effect…
Protist Paramecium (Paramecium tetraurelia) stained to show the nucleus

AI-Enabled Spatial Analysis of Complex 3D Datasets

VIDEO ON DEMAND - This edition of MicaCam offers practical advice on the extraction of publication grade insights from microscopy images. Our special guest Luciano Lucas (Leica Microsystems) will…

Cardiomyocyte Proliferation Upon Heart Injury in Zebrafish

VIDEO ON DEMAND - This edition of MicaCam focuses on the study of the zebrafish (Danio rerio) whose heart cells can fully regenerate after injury.

How Does The Cytoskeleton Transport Molecules?

VIDEO ON DEMAND - See how 3D cysts derived from MDCK cells help scientists understand how proteins are transported and recycled in tissues and the role of the cytoskeleton in this transport.
