Video: How Optical Innovations and 3D Heads-up Surgery Help to Improve Ophthalmic Surgery

Being at the leading edge of innovative treatments for cataract surgery, Dr. Ahmed was one of the first ophthalmologists to work with 3D heads-up visualization using a Leica M822 ophthalmic microscope. His focus lies on the development of advanced microsurgical techniques in glaucoma surgery and complicated cataract extraction, and he is actively involved in research and …

Correlating Intravital Multi-Photon Microscopy to 3D Electron Microscopy of Invading Tumor Cells Using Anatomical Reference Points

Correlative microscopy combines the advantages of both light and electron microscopy to enable imaging of rare and transient events at high resolution. Performing correlative microscopy in complex and bulky samples such as an entire living organism is a time-consuming and error-prone task. Here, we investigate correlative methods that rely on the use of artificial and …

Encoding and Decoding Spatio-Temporal Information for Super-Resolution Microscopy

The challenge of increasing the spatial resolution of an optical microscope beyond the diffraction limit can be reduced to a spectroscopy task by proper manipulation of the molecular states. The nanoscale spatial distribution of the molecules inside the detection volume of a scanning microscope can be encoded within the fluorescence dynamics and decoded by resolving …

How to Prepare Your Specimen for Immunofluorescence Microscopy

Immunofluorescence (IF) is a powerful method for visualizing intracellular processes, conditions and structures. IF preparations can be analyzed by various microscopy techniques (e.g. CLSM, Epifluorescence, TIRF, GSDIM), depending on the application or the researcher’s interest. Meanwhile, IF has become indispensable for a large number of research groups which have at least access to a simple …

Third Harmonic Generation Microscopy – Label-Free 3D-Tissue Imaging and Blood Flow Characterization

Third Harmonic Generation (THG) microscopy is a non-fluorescent multi-photon technique that combines the advantages of label-free imaging with restriction of signal generation to the focal spot of the scanning laser. It allows three-dimensional imaging of refraction index mismatches and of hemoglobin. We applied it to image mouse tissues and to characterize blood vessels and blood …

Egg-in-Cube: Design and Fabrication of a Novel Artificial Eggshell with Functionalized Surface

An eggshell is a porous microstructure that regulates the passage of gases to allow respiration. The chick embryo and its circulatory system enclosed by the eggshell has become an important model for biomedical research such as the control of angiogenesis, cancer therapy, and drug delivery test, because the use of embryo is ethically acceptable and …
