How to use Dragonfly Spinning Disk Microscope for Multiplex In Situ Hybridization

Sponsored by Andor, on 4 November 2020

Multiplexing in cell biology is the unveiling of several (Xn) RNAs in its 2D or 3D biological context. Multiplexing has become a hot topic in neurosciences, oncobiology, disease target diagnostics, development, behavioural studies, etc. Several techniques have been developed to allow multiplex imaging; examples of such are FISSEQ, instaSEQ, osmFISH, STARmap, MERFISH and seqFISH. The advantage of

In-Situ Sequencing and Multiplex Imaging with the Dragonfly High Speed Confocal

Sponsored by Andor, on 27 October 2020

Challenge Background Understanding the molecular basis of development, brain function, neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, and behaviour is an enormous task. Up until recently, RNAs could be sequenced in bulk, or at the single-cell level, but unfortunately, the tissue environment information was lost. With smFISH [1] (single molecule FISH), the spatial information is retained, but this is

Microscopy Open Access collection 2020

Posted by , on 19 October 2020

Here on FocalPlane, Open Access Week is especially close to our hearts as it coincides with the birthday of the father of microscopy, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek (24 October). So every year for Open Access Week, we will be listing all the microscopy-related Open Access articles from The Company of Biologists journals on FocalPlane under the
