Simulated ocular surgery on high fidelity model eyes

Stereo microscopes for teaching future ophthalmologists

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

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 “Give a Schram Campaign”

ZEISS Primo Star microscopes for Lyon College

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.

Describing a new species using light and scanning electron microscopy

Oberonia aureolabris – a new addition to the world of orchids

Daniel L. Geiger, Curator of Malacology at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, recently discovered and named a new orchid species. In addition to macrophotography, he used light, stereo and electron microscopes from ZEISS. One of the distinguishing characteristics is the golden-orange color of the flower. And that is how he came up with the name for the species: ‘aureo’ (Latin for golden) and ’labris’ (Latin for lip): Oberonia aureolabris.

World Cancer Day

Cancer research - ZEISS microscopes provide insights into how cancer proliferates

In cancer research, scientists often use ZEISS microscopes to understand how healthy cells are different to cancer cells. Live cell imaging helps to monitor the dynamic processes in the cell cycle and is often used in cell or animal models. Autofluorescence or fluorescent labels help to distinguish tumor cells and tissue from healthy cells. Such basic research is the very foundation for the development of novel diagnoses, treatments, and cures.

ZEISS Digital Classrooms for Medical Laboratory Technicians

Interactive techniques for laboratory investigation

The Medical Laboratory Technician training program focuses on histology, clinical chemistry, microbiology and hematology, studying bodily fluids and tissue samples to detect pathogens. Other key aspects of the training include equipment and quality management. All of this makes the microscope one of the most important tools. By connecting them with one another you can create a digital classroom, where the lecturer can view live images from all of the microscopes on his iPad at any one time.
