The Spotlight microscope systems are designed for the lab scientist who needs higher sensitivity and simpler workflows 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.
Do your cells prefer a warm, cold or even hypoxic environment? Anyway, now you are able to visualize them wherever they are more
Technology measures tumors' drug resistance up to 10 times faster
A group of scientists from VCU Massey Cancer Center and UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center have developed a new, high-speed microscopy platform that can measure a cancer cell's resistance to drugs up to 10 times faster than existing technology, potentially informing more effective treatment se more
'Scaffolding' method allows biochemists to see proteins in remarkable detail
UCLA biochemists have achieved a first in biology: viewing at near-atomic detail the smallest protein ever seen by the technique whose development won its creators the 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry. That technique, called cryo-electron microscopy, enables scientists to see large biomolecules, such a more
Perfect Images: A High-Performance Microscope Dangling From Bungee Cords
To produce images of individual atoms, a microscope shouldn't shake. A patented vibration damping system developed at the TU Wien enables images of the highest quality. It is one of the most accurate measurement instruments available today: the high-performance microscope at the Institute of Applied 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
Spotlight 200i FTIR Microscope System is a high-performance microscopy platform, designed to generate high-quality, reproducible data from a variety of sample types. The combination of the highly-automated, very easy-to-use system and exceptional sensitivity ensures that quality spectra can be obtai more
The new FLUOVIEW FV3000 – faster, simpler and better confocal imaging Olympus’ new FLUOVIEW FV3000 confocal laser scanning microscope combines high-performance imaging capabilities with ease of use so researchers in such fields as cell biology, cancer research and stem cell research can collect rele 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
In the past few years, electron cryomicroscopy (cryo-EM) has emerged as an important tool for the analysis of biomolecular structures at resolutions that allow construction of atomic models. However, cryo-EM has the potential to do more than determine molecular structures. Cryotomography can describ
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.
