Lightsheet microscopy workshop

Successful light sheet microscopy workshop in Geneva

The Wyss Center welcomed more than 100 participants

Events

News

In March, the Wyss Center in Geneva was the site of ZEISS’ first joint workshop on the topic of light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM). The aim of the workshop was to provide information on the different aspects of LSFM through various talks and encourage developers and users to share ideas. The event was nicely rounded off by hands-on sessions run by ZEISS and arivis.

Iterative reconstruction with ZEISS OptiRecon

News

The new module for the ZEISS Xradia Versa 500-series of 3D X-ray microscopes (XRM) will allow users to acquire high quality images in one-quarter the time: ZEISS OptiRecon uses a new, advanced iterative reconstruction technique. Now you can make the optimal choice for your requirements: same quality images four times faster, or superior quality in the same amount of time as standard image acquisition.

Simulated ocular surgery on high fidelity model eyes

Stereo microscopes for teaching future ophthalmologists

Customer Story

Ophthalmologists require years of training and continuous practice to successfully master the skills needed to perform ophthalmic surgery. Development of the fine motor skills and getting a feel for the ocular tissues are crucial parts of simulated ocular surgery training. Over the last ten years, a combination of high fidelity model eyes, which replicate the look and feel of the human eye and Virtual Reality simulators, have enabled trainees to develop these skills away from patients and demonstrate their competence before they perform live surgery. ZEISS Stemi 305 stereo microscopes now form an integral part of the pan-European training initiative John Ferris, Head of the School of Ophthalmology in the South West of England, is running with the French based pharmaceutical company Thea. Over the last 12 months, they have run eight large surgical workshops in the UK, Spain, France and Holland, with more planned for 2018.

World TB Day – how ZEISS is supporting the fight against tuberculosis

Ten years of the tuberculosis test microscope ZEISS Primo Star iLED

Knowledge

News

Besides Robert Koch’s 1882 discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the pathogen that causes tuberculosis, ZEISS contributed another substantial technology to the battle against infectious diseases ten years ago: ZEISS Primo Star iLED. The tuberculosis test microscope is the result of cooperation between ZEISS and the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) and was introduced at the Union Conference in Paris in 2008.

The Dr. Mark Schram Microscope Campaign_1

The “Give a Schram Campaign”

ZEISS Primo Star microscopes for Lyon College

Customer Story

News

For 25 years, Mark Schram, Professor Emeritus of Biology at Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas, USA, had one dream: to equip an entire biology lab with new microscopes and related software. Thanks to the generous donations of college supporters who share his dream, ZEISS was able to equip the Lyon College biology department with 24 ZEISS Primo Star microscopes last month. Lyon’s biology professors use the instruments to teach a number of courses, including Principles of Biology II, Genetics, Microbiology, and Histology.
