This webinar will introduce researchers to the new ZEISS Elyra 7 super-resolution microscope. The Elyra 7 allows biomedical researchers to explore the finer details and mechanisms at play in their respective biological systems. Lattice SIM is a new development based on the concept of traditional Structured Illumination Microscopy and allows researchers to more gently acquire image data from their samples over a longer period of time, but at the same time maintain image resolution. This is an important tool for live-cell imaging applications. The single-molecule imaging domain will also be introduced. Single-molecule localisation microscopy provides localisation precision down to approximately 25nm and is therefore an important tool for evaluating the behaviour of molecular structures normally obscured by the diffraction limit.

Speaker: Mr. Gavin Symonds
Gavin graduated from The University of Sydney in 1995 with a degree in Science. His interest in optical imaging developed from a project during his studies that involved characterising the behaviour of a benchtop experimental multichannel confocal microscope, and examining the resolution performance of immunogold and silver labelled cells undergoing mitosis. Gavin joined ZEISS in 1995 and has had a variety of roles including technical and application support. Gavin is currently the product manager for the LSM/ Elyra/ Lightsheet portfolios.
