PICASSO and whole body-expansion microscopy for ultra-multiplexed imaging and whole-body super-resolution imaging
24 Sep 2021
Fluorescence microscopy imaging has been widely used in neuroscience and cancer research, but it still has two limitations: (1) The number of fluorophores that can be simultaneously imaged in a single staining and imaging round is limited to 10, and (2) it is not easy to achieve super-resolution imaging over the whole organism.
In this webinar, Dr. Jae-Byum Chang presents two state-of-the-art techniques that he has recently developed. The first technique is PICASSO, which enables greater than 10-color multiplexed imaging of specimens without any reference spectra measurements, even with microscopy equipped with emission filters. The second technique is whole-body expansion microscopy, which enables the super-resolution imaging of all anatomical structures of whole vertebrates, especially zebrafish larvae.
During this webinar, you will learn:
- The limitations of the current multiplexed imaging techniques
- How ultra-high multiplexed imaging can be used to study the molecular heterogeneity of the brain
- The advantages of whole-body super-resolution imaging of vertebrates
