ZEISS Technology Seminar - Celldiscoverer 7

Presentations and Live Q&A

This Seminar consists of two presentations with a live Q&A at the end of the session. The topic of the first presentation discusses choosing the best microscopy method for your next experiment with living samples. The second presentation talks about making complex microscopy simple through benefiting from better data collected in a shorter time with a reliable automated research platform.

Seminar Topics

Talk 1

Imaging of living samples

Biology is the science that studies life. So it comes as no surprise that imaging of living organisms or cells has always been a central focus to drive research forward and provide unique insights. Being able to image living samples has allowed researchers to observe complex morphogenic processes such as the development of an organism over time, but it comes with its own challenges. Living samples are often delicate and finding the optimal imaging set up is critical for the success of the experiment. In this webinar we will discuss the imaging parameters that are important for your live imaging experiments and deduce the best imaging technique from them. We will look at a variety of different examples and evaluate which method would be the most suitable, leading to the best results. We will review imaging of samples from single cells in culture, all the way to imaging of larger 3D model organisms, such as zebrafish and cricket embryos.

During the seminar we will talk about Widefield Microscopy with Deconvolution, Confocal Microscopy and Airyscan 2 Multiplex, Multiphoton microscopy, Structure Illumination Microscopy, and Lightsheet Microscopy. The individual strength of each method will be discussed in the context of live imaging, aiming to support you choosing the best instrument for your next experiment with living samples.

Talk 2

The Smart Microscope for Automated Workflows: Celldiscoverer 7 with LSM 900

Very often in life sciences research, in order to reach a reliable result, it is necessary to perform multiple repetitions of experiments or to run complex assays. Automation and parallelization are of significant assistance in reducing the time it takes to achieve this. This drive towards automation and efficiency resulted in the development of Celldiscoverer 7 in order to combine the easy-to-use automation of a boxed microscope with the image quality and flexibility of a classic inverted research microscope. Celldiscoverer 7 calibrates itself, automatically detects and focuses your sample and optimises all optical parameters without the requirement of any user interaction. All Celldiscoverer 7 components are optimized for hassle-free automated imaging. New users and multi-user facilities will particularly enjoy the in-built automation and usability features since even the most inexperienced of microscope users can capture high quality data with ease. This leaves more time to get on with other projects.

We now proudly present the Celldiscoverer 7 with LSM 900 and Airyscan 2, which fuses the advantages of widefield and confocal imaging. The unparalleled sensitivity of the camera as well as the LSM detectors guarantee for the gentlest image acquisition when working with sensitive biological samples. Airyscan 2 with its new Multiplex mode, enables the acquisition of large volumes with high temporal and optical resolution. Also, we present Mixed Mode where camera acquisition and confocal imaging can now be combined in the same experiment.

The principle goal of ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7 with LSM 900 is to make complex microscopy simple. Whether working with 2D or 3D cell cultures, tissue sections or small model organisms, you will benefit from better data in a shorter time with this reliable automated research platform.
