New 2D Superresolution mode for ZEISS Airyscan delivers 120 nanometer lateral resolution

Improved optical sectioning brings higher resolution without acquiring a z-stack

At Neuroscience 2017, a new processing mode for the ZEISS LSM 8 family with Airyscan has been introduced. ZEISS Airyscan allows for the unique combination of superresolution imaging with increased sensitivity and acquisition speed. It works with standard samples and dyes, and captures 3D data even in thicker samples that need a higher penetration depth. The unique 32-channel GaAsP array detector captures more spatial information than traditional confocal microscopes. The new 2D Superresolution mode now uses this additional information to create an optical section of 0.2 Airy units (AU) and resolves structures down to 120 nanometer laterally in a single image.

German state and federal governments agree on funding for a high-resolution microscopy centre in Heidelberg

Thermo Fisher Scientific, Leica and ZEISS will contribute a total sum of ten million Euros to the project

The letter of intent was signed today during an official ceremony on the campus of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg by representatives of the German government together with industry and foundation partners. The new centre for light and electron microscopy will be a unique service facility for the life sciences and unite cutting-edge equipment, experts and data analysis. The centre will be open to visiting scientists from all over the world as well as industry partners. It will make new technologies at EMBL available to foster a better understanding of the molecular basis of life and disease.

Get ahead in the game of microscopy

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.

New publication shows the potential of ZEISS Airyscan

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.
