Microscopy seminar series

March 21st, 10:00 – Seminar on Insights into super-resolution

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....

February 28th, 10:30 – Seminar on Dynamic Imaging of Living Samples

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....
