• This is to inform you of a workshop for Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM, newly developed lattice structured illumination-based super-resolution microscope system.
  • In Lattice SIM, the sample area is illuminated with a lattice pattern instead of grid lines. The lattice pattern gives higher contrast and 2x higher sampling efficiency compared with conventional SIM, so that you need less illumination. This is a breakthrough in light efficiency, enabling fast live imaging of 3D volumes at excellent resolutions (120 nm in XY and 300 nm in Z) while minimizing photodamage.
  • Dr. Bernhard Zimmermann (Senior Director Business Sector Life Sciences, ZEISS Research Microscopy Solutions, Jena, Germany) is giving a seminar on Lattice SIM technology and its comparison to other super-resolution methods. After the seminar, we will have demonstration sessions using your own sample (about 2 hrs each). Please register the seminar and the demonstration session (if you wish) by January 10 using the Registration URL below.
