The transparent larva comprises a fully functional innate immune system and enables live imaging of fluorescent immune cells in transgenic animals. Zebrafish infection models have been developed for both the human bacterial pathogen Shigella flexneri and the natural fish bacterial pathogen Mycobacterium marinum. Importantly, whilst S. flexneri causes acute infection and is typically used as an inflammatory paradigm, M. marinum causes a chronic disease similar to tuberculosis in humans. Here, we use real time fluorescence microscopy to image transgenic zebrafish larvae with neutrophils (granulocyte white blood cells) expressing the green fluorescent protein eGFP. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/real-time-observation-of-neutrophil-white-blood-cell-recruitment-to-bacterial-infection-in-vivo/ Thu, 27 Jul 2017 11:20:00 +0000 MSc Alexandra R.

This report gives useful information to scientists and technicians which can help improve their daily laboratory work by making the steps of transgenesis, fluorescent screening, and functional imaging more efficient. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/work-more-efficiently-in-developmental-biology-with-stereo-microscopy-zebrafish-medaka-and-xenopus/ Thu, 27 Oct 2016 07:50:00 +0000 PhD James DeRose, Anastasia Felker, Dr. Elena Chiavacci, Gianluca D’Agati, Ph.D. Christian Mosimann, Ph.D. Jens Peter Gabriel, PhD Heinrich Bürgers, Ph.D. Adam Cliffe https://www.leica-microsystems.com/17476 Stereo Microscopy Live-Cell Imaging Fluorescence Microscopy Work More Efficiently In Developmental Biology With Stereo Microscopy: Fruit Flies (Drosophila Melanogaster) For scientists and technicians working with fruit flies, most often genus Drosophila, this report is intended to give useful information to help improve daily laboratory work by making the steps of fly pushing, fluorescent screening, dissection, and documentation/imaging more efficient. It also details various possibilities for properly equipping or stocking a fly lab. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/work-more-efficiently-in-developmental-biology-with-stereo-microscopy-fruit-flies-drosophila-melanogaster/ Thu, 22 Sep 2016 08:58:00 +0000 PhD Heinrich Bürgers, PhD James DeRose, Ph.D. Adam Cliffe https://www.leica-microsystems.com/18691 Stereo Microscopy Confocal Microscopy Fluorescence Microscopy Work Efficiently in Developmental Biology with Stereo and Confocal Microscopy: C. elegans For scientists, technicians, and teachers working with the worm C. elegans in the research lab or classroom, this report is intended to give useful information to help improve their daly work. The aim is to make the work steps of worm picking, transgenesis, RNA interference, screening, and functional imaging efficient. It also details the various possibilities for equipping a research worm lab or biology classroom/teaching lab explaining worm methods. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/work-efficiently-in-developmental-biology-with-stereo-and-confocal-microscopy-c-elegans/ Mon, 19 Sep 2016 06:09:00 +0000 PhD James DeRose, PhD Heinrich Bürgers, PhD Martin Gamerdinger
