A Noble Method: Super-resolution microscopy

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.

New Multiplex mode for ZEISS Airyscan 2 enables fast and gentle confocal microscopy

ZEISS LSM 9 family for life sciences research introduced

HeLa cells imaged with ZEISS Airyscan 2
The new Multiplex mode for ZEISS Airyscan 2 delivers more information in less time. Smart illumination and detection schemes allow parallel pixel acquisition for fast and gentle confocal microscopy. Researchers can now image their most challenging three-dimensional samples with high framerates in superresolution.

Spotlight on the cells’ ultrastructure

New correlative approach combines superresolution confocal and scanning electron imaging

The Radboundumc research team

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.

A journey into a human kidney

ZEISS microscopes help uncover centuries old hidden secrets of human kidney stones

Kidney stones, the painful urinary deposits that affect more than 10 percent of people worldwide, are surprisingly dynamic, forming much like microscopic coral reefs, according to new research that could provide insights into how to better diagnose and treat the condition.

A new platform for fast and gentle 3D superresolution microscopy

ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM expands the possibilities of structured illumination microscopy (SIM)

ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM is the new flexible platform for fast and gentle 3D superresolution.
ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM is a new flexible platform for fast and gentle 3D superresolution. Lattice SIM expands the possibilities of structured illumination microscopy (SIM): illuminating the sample with a lattice pattern rather than grid lines gives higher contrast and allows a more robust image reconstruction.

New 2D Superresolution mode for ZEISS Airyscan delivers 120 nanometer lateral resolution

Improved optical sectioning brings higher resolution without acquiring a z-stack

At Neuroscience 2017, a new processing mode for the ZEISS LSM 8 family with Airyscan has been introduced. ZEISS Airyscan allows for the unique combination of superresolution imaging with increased sensitivity and acquisition speed. It works with standard samples and dyes, and captures 3D data even in thicker samples that need a higher penetration depth. The unique 32-channel GaAsP array detector captures more spatial information than traditional confocal microscopes. The new 2D Superresolution mode now uses this additional information to create an optical section of 0.2 Airy units (AU) and resolves structures down to 120 nanometer laterally in a single image.

German state and federal governments agree on funding for a high-resolution microscopy centre in Heidelberg

Thermo Fisher Scientific, Leica and ZEISS will contribute a total sum of ten million Euros to the project

The letter of intent was signed today during an official ceremony on the campus of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg by representatives of the German government together with industry and foundation partners. The new centre for light and electron microscopy will be a unique service facility for the life sciences and unite cutting-edge equipment, experts and data analysis. The centre will be open to visiting scientists from all over the world as well as industry partners. It will make new technologies at EMBL available to foster a better understanding of the molecular basis of life and disease.

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.
