Research efforts addressing the global challenge of Diabetes Mellitus are very much dependent on applying advanced microscopy technologies, but such equipment can often be inaccessible for many researchers. Addressing the everyday demands of life science research groups, a new category of compact all-in-one confocal microscope has emerged to enable students and professors alike to achieve highquality results.


The FluoView FV10i from Olympus is proving to be a popular tool in the research group of Professor Simone Baltrusch from the Medical Faculty, University of Rostock. Meeting with Olympus Application Specialist Dr. Helge Schmidt, she discusses how accessible options for confocal microscopy have boosted her group's work - advancing understanding of the role played by the mitochondrial network and facilitating the development of techniques for diagnosing neuropathy.
