Research team from York uses confocal microscopy from ZEISS to investigate neurodegeneration processes in Parkinson’s disease
A key question in Parkinson’s disease is why dopamine neurons die particularly fast in a specific area of the midbrain. In a recent paper, a research team from the University of York studied Drosophila neurons using ZEISS LSM 780 in the Bioscience Technology Facility to investigate basic processes of this neurodegenerative disease. They proposed that variations in the expression of a specific protein contribute to differences in neurodegeneration seen in Parkinson’s disease.
ZEISS supports new EMBL Imaging Centre with solutions for correlative microscopy
The new EMBL Imaging Centre, to be opened in 2021 and located on the campus of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany, will give researchers access to the most modern microscopy technologies available. ZEISS supports the centre with solutions for correlative microscopy.
New correlative approach combines superresolution confocal and scanning electron imaging
Researchers from the Department of Cell Biology, theme Nanomedicine, and the ‘Microscopy Imaging Center’ at the Radboudumc in Nijmegen, Netherlands recently developed and optimized a pipeline for correlative imaging using superresolution (SR) microscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to study the cellular ultrastructure.
From Sample Preparation to 3D Reconstruction and Quantification
In this webinar Stefanie Freitag from ZEISS will first give an introduction about existing advanced microscopic techniques for battery research including the presentation of possibilities for in-situ observations. In the second part Dr. Jochen Joos from KIT will explain his established workflow from sample preparation to 3D reconstruction and describe hurdles and solutions concerning image processing.

Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) scientists determine central nervous system regeneration with ZEISS microscopes
The eel-like lamprey can fully regenerate its spinal cord even after it’s been severed. In a new study, Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) scientists report that lampreys recover and regenerate just as impressively after a second complete spinal cord injury at the same location. A recent study by Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) scientists opens up a new path for identifying pro-regenerative molecules and potential therapeutic targets for human spinal cord injury.
Accessing your images, data, and workflow templates any time at any place with ZEISS ZEN Data Storage
ZEISS ZEN Data Storage enables central data management: Experts and non-experts alike can share instrument presets, workflows, data, and reports with ease. Since all data can be accessed from different systems and locations, ZEISS ZEN Data Storage facilitates connected work in multi-user laboratories.
Organizing images from any source to connect multi-modal data with ZEISS ZEN Connect
ZEISS ZEN Connect keeps all data from multiple sources together. It lets you visualize the relationship between different microscopy images and data from the same sample, all in one place.
Automated Image Segmentation with ZEISS ZEN Intellesis
ZEISS ZEN Intellesis enables simpler, automated image segmentation. Images that had to be processed manually can now be segmented automatically which provides you with more time for the actual image analysis.
APEER helps to analyze all imaging data and unveils new perspectives
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS in the German city of Halle investigate the interactions between teeth and various dental care products. With APEER they can now analyze and correlate all data and gain new insights.
