Angewandte Chemie: Nanocosmos of Cells Under the Magnifying Glass

Angewandte Chemie: Nanocosmos of Cells Under the Magnifying Glass

Angewandte Chemie publication: Picture a satellite orbiting the Earth and capturing numerous individual images of the planet at night in impressive definition, which, when combined to create one single large photograph, deliver an extremely detailed picture of life at night on the surface of the Earth. Only, in this case, the camera is not orbiting the Earth; it is traveling across human cells. And the light captured does not come from street lights, headlights, and lamps, but from specific structures inside the cell membrane or, more accurately, from glycoproteins and lipids illuminated using a special technique.

Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy

Robust sample preparation is key to any multiuser, high-end electron microscopy facility. At the EMBL our facility is permanently hosting 10 to 15 projects in parallel, and provides service to approximately 50 users per year. Each of these users face a number of different challenges when it comes to sample preparation and have different levels of experience. Our goal is to assist by standardizing methods and developing a toolbox to help projects become feasible and more efficient.

Calibration of Fluorescence Microscopes

Calibration of Fluorescence Microscopes

We propose a new durable multi-dimensional ruler for the calibration and the alignment of fluorescence microscopes (wide-field, confocal, multiphoton), thanks to non-photo-bleaching fluorescent sub-micrometer patterns embedded in glass in three dimensions. This new and robust tool enables the measurement of stage repositioning, detector's features, illumination homogeneity, both lateral and axial resolutions as well as the spectral shape, intensity and lifetime response of the system. more
