LSM 980 at the Centre fore Cellular Imaging

Opening day at the Centre for Cellular Imaging

Two advanced microscope systems for super-resolution and live-cell imaging, LSM980 with Airyscan 2 and Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM and SMLM, are now installed at the Centre for Cellular Imaging and to celebrate this, we will host an “Opening Day” with seminars and demos.

Date: February 23rd, 2023
Seminar location: Arvid Carlsson, Academicum, Medicinaregatan 3, and ONLINE
Demo location: Medicinaregatan, floor 1, staircase of door 7A

The Centre for Cellular Imaging welcomes you to an Opening Day, arranged together with Carl Zeiss, to celebrate the installation of these two new microscope systems. During this day we would like to invite you to take a glimpse of what is possible with these microscopes, and what type of questions can be addressed. There will be both seminars and demos, where you can learn about the advanced technologies that powers these class-leading instruments.

ZEISS ELYRA 7 with Lattice Structure Illumination (SIM²) and Single Molecule Localization - Your Live Imaging System with Unprecedented Resolution. The super-resolution microscope ELYRA 7 with Lattice SIM² you can now double the conventional SIM resolution and discriminate the finest sub-organelle structures, even those no more than 60 nm apart. You don‘t need to sacrifice resolution when imaging at high speed (up to 255 fps ) using only the minimal exposure needed for life observation. ELYRA 7 enables you to combine super-resolution and high-dynamic imaging – without the need for special sample preparation or expert knowledge of complex microscopy techniques.

ZEISS LSM 980 with Airyscan 2 - Your Unique Confocal Experience for Fast and Gentle Multiplex Imaging. To analyze life with as little disturbance as possible, you must use low labeling density for your biological models. This requires excellent imaging performance combined with low phototoxicity and high speed. LSM 980, your platform for confocal 4D imaging, is optimized for simultaneous spectral detection of multiple weak labels with the highest light efficiency.



9:50 – 10:00 Welcome from the Head of the Centre for Cellular Imaging, Dr Julia Fernandez-Rodriguez.

10:00 – 10:35 LSM 980 with Airyscan 2 – Your Unique Confocal Experience for Fast and Gentle Multiplex Imaging. Dr Chris Power, Product & Application Sales Specialist, ZEISS Research Microscopy Solutions

10:35 – 11:10 ELYRA 7 – Ways to improve temporal and spatial resolution in Lattice SIM. Dr Klaus Weisshart, Product Management, ZEISS Research Microscopy Solution

11:10 – 11:40 The Arivis Scientific Imaging Platform: Analysis without Compromises, Molly McQuilken, Business Development Manager, Arivis at ZEISS company

Lunch Break

13:00 – 16:00 Visit to the CCI Facility, demos and refreshments!
