The LS&E Microscopy core is delighted to announce on seminars series on advanced microscopy applications and methodologies for Life Sciences Imaging taking place the biology faculty over the coming months. These seminars are designed as a program of short talks to enrich your knowledge on Live cell imaging, Clearing methodologies , Super-resolution and Image analysis aimed to help you optimize your microscopy imaging workflow. These seminars are free of charge, however, registration in event form is required. Looking forward to seeing you all, LS&E microscopy core team. ...
The LS&E Microscopy core facility the invites You to attend special seminars in Advanced Microscopy Application and Methodologies. The next seminar will be on “Insights into super-resolution – methodologies and applications of super-resolution microscopy “. Date: Tuesday, March 21st, 10:00 o’clock Please keep note that the seminar will be 30 minutes earlier than the original plan. Location: Auditorium , Faculty of Biology Speaker: Avi Jacob, Ph.D. Head of Light Microscopy facility, Bar-Ilan University. Abstract: Microscopy-based methods for breaking diffraction limited resolution are collectively known as super-resolution (SR). There are several methods which can be divided into two main approaches: deterministic and stochastic. Stochastic methods include all localization techniques such as STORM and deterministic methods include the optical approaches such as STED. STED (STimulated Emission Depletion) is a mature technology, yet can require optimization to reach ~50nm resolution. Recently, companies have begun to offer “hardware-optimization + software based SR”, whereby a measure of SR is achieved by automatically optimizing acquisition and then submitting to deconvolution. Each has their advantages. Model systems need to be appropriate for SR, such as sub organelle structures, nuclear pores or fine membrane studies. Also, care must be taken to ensure that SR is technically possible taking into account the specific SR method ...
The Life Science and Engineering (LS&E) Infrastructure Center is happy to invite you to a special symposium on flow cytometry on Tuesday, March 7, 2017. The symposium will be held in the Auditorium of Faculty of Biotechnology and Food Engineering. On this one day event we will introduce the basics of flow cytometry and how it applies to various research areas. Selected talks by researchers from different faculties at the Technion, whose work will give you a taste of what can be achieved at our LS&E Flow Cytometry Unit, will be presented. Symposium Schedule: 09:15-09:30 – Coffee and gathering 09:30-11:00 Session I – Flow cytometry as a research tool Application Specialist, BD Biosciences: Introduction to Flow Cytometry , Instrument components – Fluidics, Optics, Electronics Instrument settings – How to build an experiment from scratch 11:00-11:20 Coffee break 11:20-12:15 – Session II – Flow cytometry applied– selected talks by Technion’s students Ben-Zion Levi’s lab, Faculty of Biotechnology & Food Engineering: shRNA library screen identifies Mafk as repressor of IRF8 in non-hematopoetic cells Nabieh Ayoub’s lab, Faculty of Biology: NELF-E is recruited to DNA double-strand break sites to promote transcription repression and repair single cell genomics application specialist at the TGC,LS&E Infrastructure.

The LS&E Microscopy core facility the invites You to attend special seminars in Advanced microscopy application and Methodologies. The first seminar will be on “Dynamic Imaging of Living Samples”. Date: Tuesday, February 28th, 10:30 o’clock Location: Auditorium , Faculty of Biology Speaker: Douglas Lutz, Ph.D. Advanced Imaging Applications Specialist Getter Group Ltd- Bio Med Scientific Div. Abstract: A variety of modern imaging techniques will be presented that are especially well suited to the investigation of living samples. We will discuss the wide variety of light microscopic imaging methodologies available, how one goes about choosing the best method for different sample types, optical considerations that go into the decision making process, and how to maintain and evaluate “normal” sample physiology during the observation time frame....
