Fighting Fungi

Eliminating fungal infections with the help of ZEISS microscopes

Fungal infections are highly dangerous – and sometimes even life-threatening. For the last four
years, scientists from Jena and Würzburg have been investigating the mechanisms of fungi at the Transregional Collaborative Research Center, FungiNet, which is sponsored by the German Research Association (DFG). The facility also uses ZEISS microscopes. Dr. Axel Brakhage provides some insights into his work.

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.

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.
