ZEISS On Your Campus Online is a series of online webinars hosted by ZEISS microscopy specialists.
Starting from the 3rd of August, we will bring you a new topic every Monday at 2.00 pm AEST. Topics range across basic microscope operation, specific data analysis to the latest developments in microscopy technologies.
ZEISS On Your Campus Online has three main goals:
1. Provide information focused on better utilization of your current microscopy equipment, which can lead to:
- Higher quality imaging and faster time to results.
- A better understanding of the data collected.
- Improved experimental design.
2. Bring awareness of new and emerging microscopy trends and technologies
3.Connect live with your local ZEISS microscopy specialists and regional experts
We welcome you to join us in the upcoming webinars:
- Imaging of Living Samples New technologies for fast and gentle image acquisition
- APEER - A Researcher’s Story - Image Classification In The Cloud Helps Fighting The Effects Of Hyperoxia
- Lightsheet 7 – The ideal tool for imaging large cleared tissues and live cells.
- Fully integrated FESEM/AFM solution for plenary in situ characterization in Materials Science
Biology is the science that studies life. So it comes as no surprise that imaging of living organisms or cells has always been a central focus to drive research forward and provide unique insights. Being able to image living samples has allowed researchers to observe complex morphogenic processes such as the development of an organism over time, but it comes with its own challenges. Living samples are often delicate and finding the optimal imaging set up is critical for the success of the experiment.
In this webinar, we will discuss the imaging parameters that are important for your live imaging experiments and deduce the best imaging technique from them. We will look at a variety of different examples and evaluate which method would be the most suitable, leading to the best results. We will review imaging of samples from single cells in culture, all the way to imaging of larger 3D model organisms, such as zebrafish and cricket embryos. During the webinar, we will talk about Widefield Microscopy with Deconvolution, Confocal Microscopy and Airyscan 2 Multiplex, Multiphoton microscopy, Structure Illumination Microscopy, and Lightsheet Microscopy. The individual strength of each method will be discussed in the context of live imaging, aiming to support you in choosing the best instrument for your next experiment with living samples.
Lightsheet technology utilises a thin sheet of light orthogonal to the plane of detection to very gently illuminate the sample. Repetitive imaging of the sample is possible with greatly reduced photobleaching effects. Long time course imaging of dynamic live samples is possible, or alternatively the imaging of large, fixed, cleared samples at low magnifications provide detailed images of morphological structures. Imaging of large volumes is significantly improved in terms of imaging speed over other optical methods.
This talk will introduce the lightsheet concept to researchers, and outline the new developments in this technology with the release of the Lightsheet 7.
This webinar tells a researcher's story about how the open-source, cloud-based image analysis platform APEER helped to advance a medical research project. To investigate a chronic lung disease, image classification in the cloud was used to distinguish between healthy and diseased lungs. See APEER use case examples, browse through available modules and workflows, learn how to use APEER and how APEER can help with your research project.
Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM) and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) traditionally deliver complementary sample information and therefore have been increasingly adopted by Researchers and process control facilities.
In this webinar, we introduce a unique and fully integrated FESEM/AFM solution that enables in-situ multi-modal imaging, fast & precise sample/cantilever navigation, and live & interactive investigation of sample manipulations. Examples utilizing standalone FESEM and AFM systems will also be shared to highlight the additional benefits gained from an integrated, combined FESEM/AFM solution.
Further application examples will illustrate how in-situ FESEM/AFM imaging can efficiently characterize samples and provide a more complete understanding of material proprieties including surface, compositional, electrical, or other physical properties. An overview of the analytical capabilities afforded by the field-free SEM lens to accurately image the real in-situ environment and an overview of the integration between hardware and software will also be covered.
