Airyscanning is the revolutionary detector technology for confocal microscopes by ZEISS. http://www.zeiss.com/airyscan

Combine multiple imaging technologies from ZEISS and gain new perspectives on your sample

Microscopy is so much more than simply making small things visible. With different microscopy techniques, you can observe living cells in motion, collect three-dimensional measurements, identify chemical elements, count tiny particles, characterize surfaces, create nano structures, and look into the smallest objects without destroying them.

Comparing Airyscan technology to conventional confocal imaging in live cell imaging

The recently published peer-reviewed paper “Exploring the Potential of Airyscan Microscopy for Live Cell Imaging” by Kseniya Korobchevskaya, B. Christoffer Lagerholm, Huw Colin-York  and Marco Fritzsche from the University of Oxford, UK highlights the significant improvement of resolution and signal-to-noise at the same time of ZEISS Airyscan compared to conventional confocal imaging techniques.

ZEISS on Your Campus microscopy workshop series is visiting the UK in 2017

ZEISS Microscopy UK recently kicked off its Life Science Imaging workshops giving microscope users the chance to redefine how they use the latest technology from ZEISS. The day consisted of short but focused talks and hands-on interactive workshops. The sessions provided an overview of the new ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7, Fast Mode for LSM 880 with Airyscan, the recently updated Axio Observer family of inverted research microscopes, and electron microscopy for life sciences with ZEISS Atlas 5. ZEISS experts were on-hand to discuss how the systems can be used to their full potential and demonstrated correlative 3D microscopy solutions from light toelectron/ion and X-ray microscopy.

ZEISS licenses Differential Intensity Processing (SR-DIP) from VIB BioImaging Core for fluorescence microscope systems

Laser-scanning confocal microscopy, which enables scientists to construct 3D representations of objects in the range of hundreds of nanometer, has been the workhorse and method of choice for imaging for decades now and has revolutionized our view of biology and life sciences. Scientists at the VIB BioImaging Core, Belgium have taken the potential of confocal microscopy across the diffraction barrier by using innovative software-based image analysis tools. This new, patented methodology now makes this possible through a collaboration between VIB and German microscopy leader ZEISS.

A new reference list details scientific work with ZEISS LSM 8 family of confocal microscopes with Airyscan detector

The traditional principle of the LSM beampath forces the user to compromise either on resolution or sensitivity. Resolution is increased by closing the pinhole, at the same time limiting the amount of light that is allowed to pass through to the detector. The Airyscan detector of ZEISS LSM 880 and LSM 800 overcomes this challenge. A new publication list assembles some of the scientific work that has been done with the ZEISS LSM 8 family of confocal microscopy systems. The great variety of applications collectively profits from the light efficient beam path of the LSM systems, and the unique combination of superresolution, high sensitivity and high speed imaging provided by Airyscan.

ZEISS shows new Celldiscoverer 7 and Axio Observer, wins #MyNeuroVote people's choice award third time in a row

This year more than 30.000 people attended the 46th annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) at the San Diego Convention Center. From November 12-16, ZEISS joined the premier venue for neuroscientists to present our newest instruments and technologies. 3D imaging in light, electron and X-ray microscopy is essential to decipher the human connectome, assist in brain research, or help to fight neurodegenerative diseases such als Alzheimer’s, and ZEISS once again demonstrated the perfect tools and applications to enthusiastic scientists.

Salk scientists identify the cell nucleus as a driver of gene expression and, sometimes, disease

We put things into a container to keep them organized and safe. In cells, the nucleus has a similar role: keeping DNA protected and intact within an enveloping membrane. But a new study by Salk Institute scientists, detailed in the November 2 issue of Genes & Development, reveals that this cellular container acts on its contents to influence gene expression. Microscopy was performed with a ZEISS LSM confocal microscope system.
