The Wyss Center welcomed more than 100 participants
In March, the Wyss Center in Geneva was the site of ZEISS’ first joint workshop on the topic of light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM). The aim of the workshop was to provide information on the different aspects of LSFM through various talks and encourage developers and users to share ideas. The event was nicely rounded off by hands-on sessions run by ZEISS and arivis.
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.
Spotlight on the customer
Asia, America and Europe: Eight ZEISS Microscopy Customer Centers strategically
located around the globe offer the customer a perfect insight into the ZEISS Microscopy
portfolio extending from light, electron and ion microscopes to X-ray microscopes.
More than 150 customer demonstrations are performed every month all over the
world. Every month around 50 customers attend in-house training, user meetings and
workshops focused on the subject of microscopy.
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.
Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology becomes first ZEISS labs@location partner in North America
A new agreement between the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and ZEISS has named the Core Facilities at IGB as an official ZEISS labs@location Partner. The model facility will allow researchers from around the U.S. to test-drive new instruments in the IGB’s Core Facilities Microscopy Suite. This partnership represents the first North American location of the ZEISS labs@location partner program, already in use across Europe.
ZEISS on Your Campus microscopy workshop series is visiting the UK in 2017
ZEISS Microscopy UK recently kicked off its Life Science Imaging workshops giving microscope users the chance to redefine how they use the latest technology from ZEISS. The day consisted of short but focused talks and hands-on interactive workshops. The sessions provided an overview of the new ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7, Fast Mode for LSM 880 with Airyscan, the recently updated Axio Observer family of inverted research microscopes, and electron microscopy for life sciences with ZEISS Atlas 5. ZEISS experts were on-hand to discuss how the systems can be used to their full potential and demonstrated correlative 3D microscopy solutions from light toelectron/ion and X-ray microscopy.
ZEISS supports educational outreach project with high-end microscope objectives
Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (LSFM) combines the advantages of fast wide field detection and optical sectioning and is perfectly suited to image large and moving samples at cellular resolution. Its underlying principles are easily understood with basic knowledge in optics or photography. Still, little is known to the public about microscopy in general and LSFM in particular. To change this, a team of scientists has built a robust and easy to operate light sheet microscope for a museum exhibition.
ZEISS shows new Celldiscoverer 7 and Axio Observer, wins #MyNeuroVote people's choice award third time in a row
This year more than 30.000 people attended the 46th annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) at the San Diego Convention Center. From November 12-16, ZEISS joined the premier venue for neuroscientists to present our newest instruments and technologies. 3D imaging in light, electron and X-ray microscopy is essential to decipher the human connectome, assist in brain research, or help to fight neurodegenerative diseases such als Alzheimer’s, and ZEISS once again demonstrated the perfect tools and applications to enthusiastic scientists.
