Automated microscope for gentle and fast confocal 4D imaging

Enhancing ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7 with ZEISS LSM 900 for optical sectioning

Primary lung fibroblasts imaged with ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7 with LSM 900

By adding ZEISS LSM 900 with Airyscan 2 to ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7, users get the ease-of-use and automation from a fully integrated microscope platform and the superb confocal image quality and flexibility of the ZEISS LSM 9 family with Airyscan 2. The new Multiplex mode allows the user to perform superresolution 3D imaging with up to 1.5x higher resolution. Additionally, researchers can easily separate multiple labels with spectral imaging.

The lamprey regenerates its spinal cord not just once – but twice

Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) scientists determine central nervous system regeneration with ZEISS microscopes

Lamprey spinal cord

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.

What do metallographers actually do?

The microscope as the most important tool

Toni Vegaz Nguyen, who himself trained as a metallographer at the Lette Verein Berlin, explains what a metallographer does, why he needs microscopes for it.

Metallographers mainly deal with the microstructure of materials and contribute to quality assurance. This also includes mechanical-technological and non-destructive material testing, material development, and research of high-quality materials as well as damage analysis.

Efficient microstructure characterization of metals using light microscopy

Your questions answered

Microstructure of Material

A material’s properties are strongly linked to its microstructure, such as grain size, porosity, phase and non-metallic inclusions. Light microscopy is a powerful tool for evaluating a material’s microstructure, but extracting meaningful results using traditional image analysis can be challenging.

In a recent SelectScience® webinar, Tim Schubert, materials scientists at the Materials Research Institute Aalen (IMFAA), Aalen University, and Torben Wulff, solutions manager light microscopy at ZEISS Research Microscopy Solutions, introduce a new comprehensive solution for microstructure analysis and present standardized techniques for metallography investigation.

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.
