Do your cells proliferate well? What is the cell number? Do they migrate or form structures? Get the answers without even opening your incubator more
It lets us eye otherwise inaccessible tiny structures, and has done so for centuries now. But in recent times microscopy has also made headway into analytics. FTIR and RAMAN microscopes, for example, can obtain spectroscopic data for chemical imaging. Their chemical composition is ascertained by comparison with database entries or reference substance results. The obtained data can be related to surface structures with the help of 3D computer illustrations based on data from microscopic sensors.

2018 WITec Paper Award for Outstanding Scientific Publications
Every year WITec, the Raman imaging company, recognizes three peer-reviewed publications that stand out in terms of originality and significance and feature data acquired with a WITec microscope. This year, scientists from universities and institutes in Bochum, Bayreuth and Minneapolis received the more
Tiny spiders, big color
There's plenty that's striking about Phoroncidia rubroargentea, a species of spider native to Madagascar, starting with their size - at just three millimeters, they're barely larger than a few grains of salt. But the reason they caught Sarah Kariko's eye had more to do with their color. Unlike many more
Newly improved glass slide turns microscopes into thermometers
The humble glass microscope slide may be primed for a makeover. A study published online in the journal Nature Communications describes how an updated version of this centuries-old tool can now enable scientists to see tiny objects while also measuring their temperature. The advancement, made possib more
The Lumascope™ miniature microscopes enable you to examine cells in their "familiar environment". Due to the compact design, long-term multi-channel recordings of cells (phase contrast, blue-, green- and red-fluorescent) can be performed directly in an incubator, in hypoxia cabinets or even in cold more

Efficient Transfection of Primary Human Skeletal Myoblasts Using FuGENE® HD Transfection Reagent
Transfection of cells is one of the main techniques used to influence gene expression. Most primary cells and human skeletal myoblasts (SkMC) in particular are very difficult to transfect, whereas for cell lines such as C2C12, many suitable transfect more
Field-Flow Fractionation - The Universal Separation Principle for Particle and Macromolecule Characterization
High molecular weight polymers, bio molecules or particles in a range of a few nanometers up to several microns are more and more important in science and technology. Many applications are based on the specific properties of these materials. For this more
The 14th International Conference on X-ray Microscopy (XRM2018) will be held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, from August 19-24, 2018. This meeting is hosted by the Canadian Light Source and the University of Saskatchewan.
The Workshop by Anton Paar takes place in Houston, TX.
By the end of the course, participants should be able to prepare and perform and analyse microinjection experiments into cultured cells using specific manipulators. Target group: Technicians and scientists interested in microinjection into adherent cells. Basic experience with cell culture and micro
