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.

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.

Hamamatsu Photonics introduces the world's first Gen II sCMOS camera, the ORCA-Flash4.0. It simultaneously provides high sensitivity (over 70% QE at 600 nm), very low noise (1.3 electrons), and fast frame rates (100 frames/s). This versatile camera is suitable for many applications including super-resolution microscopy, TIRF microscopy and FRET.
