Super-resolution analysis of living cells: New approaches


In this webcast, cell imaging pioneer Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz PhD discusses new optical probes, imaging strategies and technical innovations that are enabling quantitative live-cell investigations. She will explain these developments, as well as their impact for applications—including the understanding of spatiotemporal behavior and dynamic interactions of molecules within cells. Bring your queries and conundrums, because Dr. Lippincott-Schwartz will dedicate some time to answering questions from the audience.


Quantitative fluorescence imaging and antibody cell labeling


Antibody labeling provides a critical tool for biomedical research. In this webcast you will learn about fluorescence technologies, microscope components, cameras, and analysis tools for fluorescence imaging and antibody labeling; and you will learn how you can affect the outcome of experiments and produce consistent, quantitative, and robust measures from your specimens.

This webcast, by renowned cell biologist and immunologist Simon C. Watkins at the University of Pittsburgh, will use examples from research using cellular, tissue, or whole animal imaging combined with fluorescence approaches.

Introduction to AFM for Biology - Touching Molecules, Receptors, and Cells One at a Time


In this webinar, we will provide an introduction to Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) as a tool for molecular and cell biology. We will present recent results from the BioAFM literature and explain how the latest advances in AFM technology have enabled new research elucidating molecular structure, mapping cell surface receptors, and investigating cell mechanobiology as a function of disease state.

Please join us for this event sponsored by Bruker.


Serving unmet needs with OCT


What Steve Jobs referred to as “the unmet need” is a barrier to effective treatment, scientific discovery—and equipment sales. Traditionally, developers (engineers) strive for precision, elegance, and maximum theoretical performance (e.g. resolution), whereas the end user (physician or researcher) often has very different requirements. Unfortunately, efforts to bridge this gap can easily become confused.
