Live-cell imaging – nanometer-sized fluorescent probes & tags
Date: 09/15/2021 | Forthcoming Online SymposiaPast Online Symposia
Breaking the diffraction limit by the development of super-resolution microscopy techniques like STED or MINFLUX, now the size of the labeling tag plays an important role concerning the achievable resolution.In the fourth webinar of our Online Symposia 2021 two excellent guest speakers are giving a deeper inside of the design and use of nanometer-sized molecular probes for labeling living specimens.Dr. Ivana Nikić-Spiegel, group leader at the University of Tübingen, will present her work on genetically encoded proteins having an unnatural amino acid equipped with a biorthogonal side chain. In combination with an azide or tetrazine attached to an organic fluorophore, this creates a fantastic labeling strategy connecting a small-sized fluorophore directly to the protein of interest.The second speaker Dr. Gražvydas Lukinavičius, group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, has designed several fluorescent probes for direct labeling of structures like DNA, actin, or microtubules in living cells. His talk will show the influences of small changes at the ligands and organic fluorophores, leading to increased binding affinity and biocompatibility.
Live-Cell Imaging – Next Level Labeling Techniques
Date: 07/07/2021 | Past Online Symposia
The third webinar of our abberior Online Symposia in 2021 is focusing on live-cell imaging! We are pleased to welcome two excellent speakers presenting their recent work on live-cell compatible dye development and their application in cell biology. This webinar starts with a talk by our guest Francesca Bottanelli from the FU Berlin, Germany. She used novel labeling strategies for multicolor live-cell STED imaging and applied these tools for a better understanding of the Golgi apparatus and logistic transport inside cells. The second talk is given by Florian Grimm, scientist at abberior. He is focusing on the design of optimized live dyes for STED and confocal microscopy. Further, he shows smart adjustments in the microscope software to ensure imaging over a long period of time with the highest resolution.
Online Symposium – Super-Res & Plant Science
Date: 06/30/2021 | Past Online Symposia
Learn how to tackle auto fluorescence in live plant samples and see how MATRIX and 3D STED improve your plant imaging.Our guest Dr Kathryn Wright – a senior research scientist and microscopist at The James Hutton Institute – presents tips and tricks from 30 years of plant cell imaging, highlighting the challenges faced when imaging the pathogens of crop plants.Dr Jan-Gero Schloetel – an application scientist at Abberior Instruments – images live tobacco leaves on our Facility Line microscope showing strategies to identify and supress autofluorescence. He introduces MATRIX and 3D STED to boost resolution and image quality.
MATRIX STED reloaded
Date: 06/09/2021 | Past Online Symposia
Are you struggling with haze in your STED images? Would you like to image densely labelled samples and obtain excellent resolution in areas usually hidden in the haze?The abberior MATRIX detector effectively removes this background and haze from your images in confocal as well as STED. Enjoy this webinar on crystal clear imaging in 2D and 3D using MATRIX STED and learn how to improved imaging in challenging parts of your sample.
Insights into Synaptic Plasticity using STED Microscopy
Date: 02/10/2021 | Past Online Symposia
A joint webinar by abberior and our US partner Nikon! We are pleased to welcome the two speakers Joachim Fischer, main developer of our STEDYCON microscope and Dion Dickmann PhD, Associate Professor at USC.In this webinar, Joachim Fischer will present the theory of super-resolution STED microscopy and explain its implementation in the shoebox-sized STEDYCON system. Dion Dickmann will give a scientific talk on his work on synaptic organization and plasticity using multicolor STED imaging on the STEDYCON system.
