Life Science Series 1

July 19 2PM SGT

Join us for the virtual ZEISS Life Science Series (19 July - 2 August 2022), where we highlight the latest developments in microscopy and, more importantly, how these technologies have been utilised in day-to-day research.

Topics range from Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy, Lattice Lightsheet imaging to Artificial Intelligence. For each topic, you can expect an informative presentation from ZEISS experts followed by engaging discussion from key-opinion leaders and an online demonstration.

Deconvolution for Confocal Microscopy: ZEISS LSM Plus and Airyscan jDCV

Deconvolution is a powerful image processing tool. It was developed initially for widefield fluorescence microscopy but has recently witnessed increased confocal microscopy application. Deconvolution can improve the contrast and signal-to-noise ratio of confocal microscopy. With reduced pinhole size and proper pixel sampling, confocal deconvolution has been proven to increase lateral and axial resolution beyond the theoretical diffraction limit. Airyscan, a 32-channel GaAsP-based super-resolution detector, also benefits from deconvolution. The 32-channel multi-phase raw data provides additional possibilities using a newly developed joint deconvolution algorithm. This webinar will explain the theoretical foundations of ZEISS LSM Plus and Airyscan jDCV and highlight some potential applications.


Dr Xianke Shi

Dr. Xianke SHI studied his Ph.D. on Biophysics at the National University of Singapore (NUS) from 2004 to 2008, focusing his research on quantifying biomolecular interactions in living cells and living zebrafish embryos with Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS). From 2008 to 2010, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at NUS and European Molecular Biology Laboratory Heidelberg, where he continued his work on FCS and light-sheet microscopy. In January 2011, Xianke joined Carl ZEISS Microscopy, South East Asia, as a regional application specialist. He then held several positions in ZEISS, and is currently application and business development manager, APAC. He is specialized in life science light microscope techniques.
