Superresolution microscopy has recently been making headlines again, not least because it was the breakthrough that spurred Eric Betzig, Stefan Hell, and William Moerner to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2014. The number of superresolution technologies keeps increasing, along with an alphabet soup of acronyms that includes SIM, SPIM, STED, PALM, and STORM. It is difficult enough for the microscopy experts to keep up, but even more challenging for the average biologist, particularly when they are looking for more from their data than a standard or confocal microscope can offer. When faced with the array of possible techniques, how does one decide which technique is going to get the results needed for that next major publication? In this webinar we will discuss the newest developments in superresolution microscopy and provide practical advice on obtaining the best imaging results. Our panelists, including 2014 Nobel Prize winner Eric Betzig, will help you find the right tool to answer your biological question. You will also hear case studies about how superresolution microscopy data has made the difference between acceptance and rejection of key papers by scientific journals. During this webinar you will learn:
- the array of superresolution techniques available, and which is best for you
- which techniques are optimal for live cell imaging
- which techniques give the best resolution
- which techniques are best for deep tissue imaging
- for which techniques you can use your existing fluorophores and buffers, and for which you will need to reoptimize your sample preparation.
You will also be able to submit questions directly to the panelists during the live event.
The webinar will last approximately 60 minutes and will be followed by a live webchat (see below).
