Posted by FocalPlane, on 20 September 2023The FocalPlane Network is an international directory of researchers with expertise in microscopy. The goal of the Network is to facilitate promotion and networking, as well as assisting those seeking conference speakers, committee members, reviewers or collaborators. Membership is open to researchers in the microscopy community from all career stages, geographical locations or areas of
Posted by FocalPlane, on 15 September 2023Our featured image, acquired by Martín Estermann, is a 3D reconstruction of C. elegans transgenic embryos. Embryos were imaged live using a Zeiss Celldiscoverer 7 microscope. The 3D reconstruction was performed using Fiji. Histones in are shown in green and the cell membrane in magenta. We caught up with Martín to find out about his
Sponsored by CoolLED, on 13 September 2023Optical filters can make or break a fluorescence microscopy experiment. For widefield fluorescence, they also have the potential to unlock breakthroughs in high-speed, high-contrast imaging when used alongside multi-channel LED illumination systems. There are thousands of filters and dichroic mirrors to choose from, with the selection depending on the fluorophore(s) and light source. While imaging
