Revealing Cellular Dynamics with Millisecond Precision – The New Tool That Turned Electron Micrographs into Motion Pictures of Neural Communication

What if you can dissect the cellular dynamics with millisecond precision? What if you can unravel the morphological transformation of a neuron millisecond by millisecond using electron microscopy? Could this be even possible? In this webinar, we will talk about how optogenetics coupled with high-pressure freezing can make this possible. We will discuss how to […]

Leica Microsystems Laser Microdissection – Dissection Perfection

Abstract: Leica Microsystems Laser Microdissection systems are the method of choice for laser-based microscopic sample dissection and collection. Laser Microdissection (LMD) is a microscopic technique for isolating homogeneous, specific and pure targets from heterogeneous samples for downstream analysis (DNA, RNA & proteins). In addition, the Leica Microsystems LMD systems can be used with live cell […]

The Best of Both Worlds: Combining Light Sheet and Confocal Microscopy

Abstract: Living cells and organisms often suffer from the high light intensities that are used in conventional imaging. Light sheet microscopy reduces phototoxic effects and bleaching, by only illuminating a specimen in a single plane at a time whilst the signal is detected in a perpendicular direction. In combination with high-speed cameras for image acquisition, […]
