ZEISS at American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) 2015

December 13 - 15, 2015 - San Diego, CA, USA, Booth #735

Join us to learn how you collect big image data with ZEISS microscopes quickly and visualize them interactively. Discover the latest developments in ZEISS Airyscan detection and learn about new additions to the family of ZEISS Axiocam cameras.

New Developments in ZEISS Airyscan Detector

ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan sets new standards for sensitivity, resolution and speed and now users can optimize these parameters. Hear how multi-photon imaging with Airyscan gives you excellent image quality deep within scattering tissues. Lastly, learn about the ZEISS LSM 800 on the upright ZEISS Axio Examiner – ideal for imaging large cleared tissue samples.

New Additions to ZEISS Axiocam Camera Family

With ZEISS Axiocams you’ll enjoy high performance imaging with the sensitivity and resolution needed to match your demanding applications. Come see the newest additions to the ZEISS Axiocam family and learn how they match with your research imaging needs. Click here to schedule a demo to see the new cameras in action.

Immersive Microscopy Mediated Reality

Handling and visualizing big image data acquired with many modern microscopy techniques is a challenge. ZEISS and arivis are pioneering the use of Oculus Rift's advanced display technology. Virtually step into your samples and experience a perfect 3D visualization to understand spatial organization on a nanoscale level.

Accessing the Emerging Imaging Technologies at HHMI Janelia Research Campus
Sunday, December 13, 2015, 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM
Teng-Leong Chew, PhD

Visualizing and understanding complex biological processes demands the integrated efforts of biologists and physicists. The mission of the Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) is to make cutting-edge imaging technologies developed at Janelia widely accessible, and at no cost, to scientists, years before they become commercially available. This unique imaging center is thus uniquely positioned to empower investigators with tools currently not widely available elsewhere, such as the lattice light sheet microscope recently developed by Dr. Eric Betzig. In alignment with Janelia’s philosophy of encouraging bold and risky science, the AIC welcomes high-risk-high-gain projects that may challenge the current paradigm and provides full through Janelia’s in-house imaging experts and research infrastructure. This seminar will present the technical capabilities and the application process of the AIC. 

New Acquisition and Detection Modes with ZEISS Airyscan
Sunday, December 13, 2015, 1:45 PM - 2:15 PM
Duncan McMillan

Learn about two new detection and acquisition strategies for the ZEISS Airyscan detection module for laser scanning microscopy. ZEISS Airyscan, a new detector concept designed for improved laser scanning confocal microscopy, enables the simultaneous increase of both resolution and signal-to-noise ratio over traditional confocal imaging. Both modes – sensitivity and two-photon – extend the Airyscan benefits of resolution and signal-to-noise ratio to address more sample types.

Airyscan: Bringing Super Resolution to Confocal Microscopy
Sunday, December 13, 2015, 2:15 PM - 2:45 PM
Xufeng Wu, PhD

Confocal microcopy is and has been a mainstay of light microcopy for decades given the flexibility of a commercially available system. However, the resolution of a confocal microscope is still diffraction limited with a lateral resolution of ~250nm. With the recent advent of superresolution techniques (PALM, STORM, STED, and SIM), new commercially available systems are being used to image beyond the diffraction limit. As a result, the increased spatial resolution novel information regarding cell structure and function can be obtained. Recently the new Zeiss Airyscan detector was introduced as another method of superresolution and represents a good blend of resolution, sensitivity and speed. In this session, Dr.Xufeng Wu will present her recent experiences using the Airyscan to image cytoskeletal dynamics, organelle and membrane trafficking, and three-dimensional tissue architecture.
