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.

Rice Rice Baby!

Agricultural research using X-ray microscopy

imaging result of rice flower

In order to identify the structural differences between rice varieties and different parts, microscopic observation is necessary. ZEISS X-ray microscopy enables researchers to observe the inner structure with a 3D non-destructive method, which provides a new tool for rice and other agricultural research. In order to develop the application of X-ray microscopy with rice, the Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology, SIBS, CAS and ZEISS cooperated on the imaging study of rice samples.

Discovery in telomere biology advances understanding of cancer, ageing and heart disease

ZEISS Airyscan technology helps to reveal telomere structure

A team of Sydney scientists – including Katharina Gaus from University of New South Wales (UNSW) – have made a groundbreaking discovery in telomere biology with implications for conditions ranging from cancer to ageing and heart disease. The unique area detector technology of ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan made it possible to image telomere structures.

ZEISS sponsors traveling exhibition showcasing extraordinary images from science

“Images from Science 3” explores interface of science, technology, art, design, and communication

Images from Science 3

ZEISS is sponsoring Images from Science 3, a traveling exhibition celebrating the world’s most extraordinary images and image makers who explore science. The project showcases the interface of science, technology, art, design, and communication.

The exhibition, a collaboration between Rochester Institute of Technology and Johns Hopkins University, will premier in late November 2019. Images from Science 3 will feature up to 75 extraordinary still and moving images that reveal science in new and unique ways. The images for inclusion will be selected by an international panel of experts.

University Liège becomes labs@location Partner for ZEISS

Providing in depth knowledge and dedicated services

University Liège

GeMMe of University Liège, Belgium is now a labs@location partner of ZEISS. Focusing on the circular economy, construction materials, process mineralogy, geometallurgy as well as extractive metallurgy & recycling. Professor Pirard and his team use a correlative setup from ZEISS incorporating a ZEISS Sigma 300 FE-SEM with Mineralogic Mining software, SEM mounted µXRF system and ZEISS Axio Imager research grade polarization light microscope to understand important topics in the mining value chain. This analytical powerhouse is the only such setup in Europe to date.

A new way of FIB-processing

Creating TEM lamellae with the new Ion-sculptor FIB column of ZEISS Crossbeam

TEM lamellae

The Ion-sculptor FIB column of the ZEISS Crossbeam FIB-SEM introduces a new way of FIB-processing. By minimizing sample damage you’ll maximize sample quality and perform experiments faster at the same time. When preparing TEM lamellae use the low voltage capabilities of the Ion-sculptor FIB: get ultra-thin samples while keeping amorphization damage at a minimum.
