4. WEBINAR: Quantification of NF-ĸB Signaling in Living Cells using the Operetta High Content Imaging System

Discover how PerkinElmer’s Operetta® High Content Imaging System can be used to study the dynamics of the NF-ĸB family of transcription factors, pivotal in immunity and cell response, in living cells. NF-ĸB signaling is an attractive target in the development of drugs against inflammation-related diseases. Watch on-demand.


5. APPLICATION NOTE: Lumenera’s Scientific-Grade Cameras Offer Imaging Solutions for Growing Digital Pathology Market

Pathology is intricately connected to all medical advancements, as the study and diagnosis of disease through examination of organs, tissues, and bodily fluids. While microscopes still hold a central role in this science, digital pathology stands as an equally critical evolution in this field. Digital pathology is the practice of digitizing glass slides and managing the resultant information for later educational, diagnostic, and analytic purposes. In this application note, the use of Lumenera’s scientific grade cameras in digital pathology applications is explored. Download method.


6. VIDEO: Improved Imaging of Large Cleared Samples with ZEISS Lightsheet Z.1

Tissue clearing allows you to image deep into large biological samples such as tissue sections, brains, embryos, organs, spheroids or biopsies. Light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) enables imaging of cleared specimens with exceptional light efficiency, speed and next to no photo damage. Watch this video to learn how to mount cleared samples in ZEISS Lightsheet Z.1. Watch video.


7. ARTICLE: My Lab Essentials: Why UV isn't the Enemy

In the latest interview in our Lab Essentials series, Dr Richard Weller, Senior Lecturer in Dermatology at the University of Edinburgh, explains the effect of sunlight on the cardiovascular system, how we could be doing more harm than good by avoiding the sun in the name of health, and how  microscopy is essential in his research.
