Revealing the Nanoscale Organisation of the Cell Using Expansion Microscopy & Live Demo
Webinar | Revealing the Nanoscale Organisation of the Cell Using Expansion Microscopy
Overview of expansion microscopy
Step-by-step description of an optimized protocol (U-ExM)
Demonstration of cell ultrastructure preservation after expansion
In this webinar, learn the principle of expansion microscopy an emerging fluorescence microscopy sample preparation protocol which unveils molecular architecture and ultrastructure of organelles.
Our guest speaker & ExM expert, Professor Paul Guichard, head of the “Centriole architecture laboratory” at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) will share:
What are the major differences between ExM existing protocols?
Key examples of applications of ExM in Cell Biology and Parasitology
Brand new approaches coupled with ExM
A live demo on the Andor Dragonfly will follow the presentation. During this interactive session on the Dragonfly, our multimodal imaging platform, Dr Bellow will be pleased to showcase the performance of this super-resolution technique.
