In this webinar you will learn:
- How you can get started with SIM today
- How SIM enables visualization of structures that have previously only been seen with electron microscopy
- How SIM is currently being used to generate super resolution images on live, dynamic cells
Join this free webinar to learn more about super resolution microscopy, and more specifically the benefits of Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM). Super resolution represents the cutting edge of imaging technologies and allows researchers to resolve structures that they could not with confocal or standard microscopy. However, until now, getting successful results with super resolution microscopy has rested in the hands of relatively few expert biophysicists. SIM gives a two-fold increase in resolution in x, y and z, resulting in an eight-fold increase in volume resolution and brings super resolution microscopy to the hands of experts and generalists alike. It has two major advantages: being able to generate biologically relevant results with live cells, and being able to use the same fluorophores and sample preparation that are used with standard microscopy.
SIM: improve your science, don’t reinvent it!
About the presenter, Leanna Ferrand:
Leanna Ferrand has worked for GE Healthcare (previously Applied Precision, INC) since 2007. Leanna started out as an Applications Specialist for the DeltaVision™Microscope. In 2009, GEHC (as Applied Precision) licensed and commercialized the DeltaVision OMX super-resolution microscope. Leanna supported the DeltaVision OMX as the Lead Applications Specialist from 2009-2013 and learned how to utilize super resolution microscopy to acquire scientific data along with the global scientific super resolution community. Leanna is an expert in structured illumination microscopy and has successfully imaged a wide range of live and fixed biological samples. Currently, Leanna leads the Cell Analysis Product Support Team for GE Healthcare and is globally responsible for educating the GEHC Applications Specialists and the GEHC DeltaVision OMX customer base on super resolution imaging.
