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.

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.
