Super-resolution

UA Imaging Cores - summer microscopy workshop

The Summer Microscopy Workshop is open to all UA students and researchers. It is geared towards those who will be using confocal microscopy or superresolution for their research projects. This free two day workshop will consist of lectures in the mornings and instrument demonstrations on Thursday afternoon. Topics to be discussed will be:

Nikon Seminar on Super-resolution Optical Microscopy

Nikon and The University of Arizona Present a Lunch and Learn session on the difference in super-resolution techniques STORM and N-SIM. (See Flyer)

Seminar Title: Imaging Beyond the Diffraction Limit: Nikon N-STORM and N-SIM Super Resolution Systems

Date: Thursday June 2nd, 2016

Time: 11:30 am -12:30 pm

Location: Chemical Sciences Building (CSB), Room 402

Super-Resolution Imaging - The ELYRA SR-SIM System and Discussion of Other Superresolution Techniques (seminar)

Installation was completed in March 2016 of the campus’ new superresolution microscope, the Zeiss Elyra S.1. This instrument is capable of twice the resolving power of existing confocal and deconvolution fluorescence microscopes.

ORD announces the arrival of three new Zeiss optical microscopes

The Office for Research & Discovery (ORD) is pleased to announce the arrival two new state-of-the-art laser scanning confocal microscopes and a structured illumination system (SIM) in the ORD imaging facilities in January and Feb 2016.  These unique and enabling microscopes will be a huge advancement in the microscopy equipment available to researchers on campus!

4D Advanced Microscopy of Brain Circuits Course at UC Berkeley

On January 10-15, 2016, the Zeiss Berkeley Brain Microscopy Innovation Center will offer its first annual winter course. The course will focus on the newest optical tools, imaging systems, and analysis methods that are being developed for the study of neuronal circuits. Each day will be divided into lectures and hands on laboratory experience using emerging BRAIN Initiative neurotechnologies, including optogenetics, calcium imaging, super resolution imaging, and cleared tissue imaging.

UA to add several new high-end Microscopes

Senior Vice President for Research Kimberly Espy has approved funding to move forward with the purchase of three high-end optical microscopes from Carl Zeiss Microscopy, LLC. Zeiss had the winning proposal in a competitive RFP that was conducted this summer.

The instruments include an inverted confocal microscope and an upright multi-photon/confocal microscope to be placed in a new ORD Imaging Core Facility within the Marley building (main campus).

Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy 2015

Enrollment for Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy 2k15 at the Mount Desert Island Marine Laboratory in Maine is now open.

Call for Proposals - Advanced Imaging Center, HHMI, Janelia Farms

The Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at HHMI's Janelia Research Campus is jointly sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. The mission of the AIC is to make cutting-edge, pre-commercial microscopes developed at Janelia available to visiting scientists, maximizing the impact of the latest developments in optical instruments and emerging microscopy technologies.
