Maximizing fluorescence performance with LED light engine filters


LED light engines provide great convenience and capability for fluorescence microscopy. But their full performance potential is rarely realized. The good news is that you can fix this problem in your own lab.

Often, LED light engines are being used with conventional filter sets designed for mercury or xenon arc lamps. Because legacy sources differ significantly from LED sources in terms of spectral signature and energy distribution, conventional filter sets may provide suboptimal performance. In this webcast, Prashant Prabhat, Ph.D. , a veteran applications scientist, will discuss an easy means of optimizing imaging system performance using thin-film interference filters. He will explain how a fluorescence analysis software tool can provide accurate, quantitative spectral evaluation of fluorescence measurement systems in an easy-to-use web-based environment. And, he will answer your questions about filters for fluorescence imaging.


Choosing the right light source for spectroscopic applications in biomedicine


This webinar, sponsored by Ocean Optics. will explore the when and why of choosing between halogen, deuterium, xenon, LED and laser light sources for a range of biomedical applications, both inside and outside the lab.


Optogenetics techniques and technologies


Some of the most exciting work in neuroscience is enabled by emerging optogenetics technologies that allow the control of specific neurons in the brain, central nervous system, and other parts of the body. This webcast, sponsored by Kendall Research Systems and Laserglow Technologies, will present an introduction to optogenetics as a tool.


Advances in medical lasers and their applications


Medical and aestheticlasers have benefitted from technological advances that are enabling new applications. In this webcast, Dr. Juanita Anders, president of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, will discuss progress including ultrafastlasers and other advances for professional use, as well as systems for in-home use. She will explain how medical and aesthetic lasers are going beyond the traditional applications of hair removal and skin resurfacing to improve eye surgery, tattoo removal, and laser therapy. And, she will answer questions from the audience.


Intra-operative application of OCT


This webcast, sponsored by Wasatch Photonics, will discuss use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) during surgery, to improve both information available to the surgeon and outcomes for the patient. Using the example of ophthalmic surgery, Dr. Binder will  provide an overview of the commercially available OCT devices available for this application. She'll also use real-world examples to demonstrate how the technology can be helpful, and discuss the implications of OCT for intra-operative use in the future.
