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 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.


Practical Experiments for Education in Biology

University of Jena and ZEISS publish microscopy tutoring for students and prospective teachers

Together with the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, ZEISS has put together a microscopy manual for students and (future) teachers. The booklet contains practical experiments for education in biology. The English version is now available free of charge.


Get Ahead in the Game of Microscopy

Combine multiple imaging technologies from ZEISS and gain new perspectives on your sample

Microscopy is so much more than simply making small things visible. With different microscopy techniques, you can observe living cells in motion, collect three-dimensional measurements, identify chemical elements, count tiny particles, characterize surfaces, create nano structures, and look into the smallest objects without destroying them.


ZEISS at This Year’s Microscience Microscopy Congress (MMC)

Two stands and three days filled with workshops and demonstrations

ZEISS attended this year’s Microscience Microscopy Congress (MMC) – a three day bi-annual exhibition held in Manchester and the largest of its kind in Europe. Over a hundred companies attend MMC, giving delegates the chance to get hands-on with of the latest microscopy equipment.


ZEISS Digital Classrooms at Universities

Interactive techniques for classroom experiments and rehearsals may upgrade your university

Microscopy is an essential part of the life and earth sciences at universities. Students use microscopes to gain deeper insight into preparing and examining human, animal or plant cells. For this, they need various microscopy techniques and software for image acquisition and documentation in their lectures. And this is where the Digital Classroom comes into play: connected ZEISS microscopes, the ZEISS imaging software Labscope and digital equipment such as tablets enable an interactive approach to learning and create a motivating and engaging atmosphere for students. They are also inspired by the possibility of working with the tools they use in their everyday lives at university.


A Digital Classroom at the International Garden Exhibition in Berlin

School classes analyse water samples with ZEISS microscopes

A recently equipped digital classroom at the IGA campus in Berlin supports students in environmental education. With the IGA campus and the newly built environmental education centre, the IGA is focusing on encouraging the learning through play of children and young people and allowing people of all ages to experience nature in an active way. A laboratory with 28 networked ZEISS Primo Star and Stemi 305 microscopes, as well as accessories such as cameras, enables interactive learning.


ZEISS Opens New Microscopy Customer Center

Experience correlative and advanced 3D microscopy

On 24 April 2017 ZEISS opened the new ZEISS Microscopy Customer Center Europe at the Oberkochen site. This is the most comprehensive ZEISS Customer Center including light, electron and X-ray microscopy in a single location: here users from Industry and Academia can try out correlative workflows between the different microscopy technologies and also advanced 3D microscopy.


Bringing Classroom Learning to Life

ZEISS at The Big Bang Fair 2017

For the first time ever, ZEISS attended the UK Big Bang Young Scientists & Engineers Fair at Birmingham NEC presenting digital classroom solutions. This is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for young people in the UK.

The Big Bang Science Fair helped ZEISS to demonstrate to teachers how a Digital Classroom setup can help them to revolutionise the learning and teaching of STEM subjects for our scientists of tomorrow. Tom Quick from ZEISS UK commented: “The show was a fantastic experience for all involved at ZEISS, and it was extremely rewarding to see the children get so excited about science under a microscope.”


Integrated Scientific Imaging with ZEISS Digital Classroom

ZEISS & Swansea University highlight impact of microscopy solutions to improve quality of teaching

The Advanced Imaging of Materials (AIM) facility at Swansea University is an integrated scientific imaging centre with a strong focus on correlative microscopy. It aims to provide imaging and analytical capabilities across several length scales; from Angstroms to centimetres. The centre is designed to support industry, teaching and learning and fundamental research. One of the unique features of AIM is the ZEISS Digital Classroom. This features 30 digital Primotech microscopes which are each connected to an iPad and have the ability to stream onto the multiple screens around the lab. We spoke to Co-Directors of the AIM facility Dr Cameron Pleydell-Pearce & Dr Richard Johnston, who together manage the facility on a day-to-day basis and were instrumental in setting up the centre. Both have their own students and research groups who regularly use the ZEISS Digital Classroom.
