Macrophages | Confocal correlative microscopy with LSM 710 and AURIGA 60 (SEM function)

January 23 - 24, 2018 | Oberkochen, Germany

3D SEM Meets Correlative

Electron Microscopy in Life Sciences

“By the help of microscopes, there is nothing so small, as to escape our inquiry; hence there is a new visible world discovered to the understanding”. The words of Robert Hooke reflect in a perfect sense the developments that science has made to understand the subcellular world in its most specific details.

Advances in microscopy in the centuries after Robert Hooke have brought to light many different, new, and fascinating aspects of life. The rapid progression of innovative new routes have opened to enter the subcellular space with the use of electron microscopes. High-throughput and large volume imaging methods using scanning electron microscopes (SEM) invigorated EM for the life sciences, making it possible to acquire large volumes in 3D using array tomography, Focused ion beam and serial block face imaging.

Join this workshop to learn about recent developments in microscopy for life sciences, including new strategies for linking and fusing data between multiple microscopes within a holistic framework.
