Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience becomes new labs@location partner of ZEISS

Visualizing the brain ultrastructure with ZEISS microscopes

MPFI and ZEISS launched “labs@location” partnership

The MPFI Electron Microscopy (EM) Core Facility of Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) now is a ZEISS labs@location partner institution. MPFI will have access to state-of-the-art ZEISS technology before it is commercially available, providing researchers with innovative imaging tools that will empower their search for new insights into how the brain works. MPFI is only the third institution in the United States to earn the labs@location designation.

Today is World Cancer Day: #IAmAndIWill

ZEISS contributes to cancer research, diagnosis and therapy

HeLa cells under the microscope
ZEISS plays an important role in the fight against cancer. Both in labs and at hospitals, ZEISS systems support cancer research, diagnostics and treatment. For example, scientists conduct chromosome research using ZEISS microscopes and thus lay the groundwork for the fight against cancer. And with automated fluorescence microscopy and living cell experiments, researchers observe cells at different stages of their division, allowing them to slow or halt the growth of cancer.

The next generation X-ray microscopes: ZEISS Xradia 600-series Versa introduced

Faster submicron-resolution imaging of intact samples

Smartphone analysis with ZEISS Xradia 600-series Versa

ZEISS introduces two new advanced models of the ZEISS Xradia Versa family. The ZEISS Xradia 610 & 620 Versa X-ray microscopes excel through faster non-destructive imaging of intact samples without sacrificing resolution and contrast over the full range of power and kV.

Leading researchers and scientists across the world rely on the signature Resolution at a distance (RaaD) capability of ZEISS X-ray Versa microscopes, ensuring the highest resolution is maintained across longer working distances, to produce remarkable scientific insights and discoveries. The rapid rate of technology advancements today requires fast analytical instruments that can keep up the pace. The ZEISS Xradia 600-series Versa is designed for this challenge.

ZEISS optics have landed on the ISS

A team at Frankfurt’s Goethe University developed experiments to be performed in space

Alexander Gerst aboard the ISS with the three experiments in the space competition.

A team at Frankfurt’s Goethe University aims to perform experiments in space to gain insights into how our solar system was formed. Experimental Chondrule Formation aboard the ISS (EXCISS) is the name of the project which began its space mission on 17 November in a Cygnus transporter aboard the Antares rocket. It left the space station on Wallops Island, Virginia (USA) and has now arrived at the International Space Station.

A new platform for fast and gentle 3D superresolution microscopy

ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM expands the possibilities of structured illumination microscopy (SIM)

ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM is the new flexible platform for fast and gentle 3D superresolution.
ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM is a new flexible platform for fast and gentle 3D superresolution. Lattice SIM expands the possibilities of structured illumination microscopy (SIM): illuminating the sample with a lattice pattern rather than grid lines gives higher contrast and allows a more robust image reconstruction.

High performance geological investigation

ZEISS Mineralogic v1.6 offers a bumper range of new capabilities

ZEISS Mineralogic Mining for automated mineral analysis

The 7th instalment of ZEISS Mineralogic since the software was brought to the market in July 2014 represents a significant advancement in both features and productivity.

The software is already well known for providing quantitative mineralogy with the ability to calibrate EDX data to reference standards whilst simultaneously quantifying mineral textures. ZEISS has expanded this capability to provide a significant throughput improvement without compromising data quality whilst also increasing the quantitative textural classification ability of the system.

Organizing and managing digital classrooms efficiently

New software module ZEISS Labscope Teacher

ZEISS Labscope Teacher

The powerful new software module ZEISS Labscope Teacher expands the existing ZEISS Labscope installation. It puts the lecturer in charge of all connected microscopes in the network of the digital classroom while they move freely around the classroom. It lets the teacher define working groups, send group-specific tasks, and share digital information such as documents or presentations, thereby fostering teamwork. The master device makes it easy to keep everybody on track. The lecturer only needs to define the classroom layout once. Simple reloading to start the lesson saves valuable teaching time.

ZEISS laser manipulation system based on Nobel Prize-winning “optical tweezer” technology

Using light to capture and manipulate tiny objects

PALM CombiSystem

The 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Arthur Ashkin of the United States for his work on transforming laser light into miniature tools. Based on this technology, ZEISS has developed PALM MicroTweezers – an optical tweezers system that allows precise, contact-free cell manipulation as well as the trapping, moving, and sorting of microscopic particles such as beads or even subcellular particles.
