The conference "Trends in Micoscopy 2014" will take place from March 27 -29 in Freiburg, Germany. The conference brings together leading high-end microscope techniques developers and users from Germany with their world-wide colleagues.
• Super-Resolution Microscopy
• Light-Sheet Microscopy
• Correlative Microscopy (Super Resolution + EM)
• Big Data Analysis and Handling
But also other new microscopy developments and all the biological results obtained by these techniques will be covered.

Leica Application Suite Advanced Fluorescence (LAS AF) 3.2 focuses on 3D analysis, 3D measurements and 3D visualization. The 3D functionalities are especially interesting for users of Leica SR GSD 3D: They make Ground State Depletion (GSD) data visible as volume rendered images and therefore add a third dimension to super-resolution images.

The 14th European Light Microscopy Initiative (ELMI2014) conference will be held in Oslo, Norway from May 20-23, 2014. ELMI is an internationally recognized meeting on Light Microscopy and offers a unique combination of lectures, exhibitions and hands-on workshops organized by leading microscopy companies. The meeting is aimed at a life sciences audience and specifically focuses on close collaborative interactions between companies, developers and researchers. Imaging methods from a wide range of research fields will be presented that are relevant to both new and expert users of electronic and photonic methods.

Dichroics in highest level of performance are now available! They are manufactured by a special plasma coating technique, which results in a stress-free coating with fully dense dielectric films. Superflat dichroics with λ/10 specification after coating can be achieved on 2 mm substrates, no need of backside compensation or thick and expensive substrates. Typical applications are laser based spectroscopy methods like super-resolution microscopy, interferometry, TIRF microscopy, confocal microscopy etc.

The 20 grants from the BBSRC Advanced Life Sciences Research Technology initiative (ALERT13) represent the first major equipment purchasing grant scheme from BBSRC since 2007. The equipment funded includes a super-resolution microscope for plant scientists, the UK's first two commercial Fluorescence Light Sheet Microscopes and the establishment of a consortium for three-dimensional electron microscopy at Oxford Brookes University.

Insufficient light causes a snowstorm effect on many photos and videos, as a result of noise. It is important to know the different reasons for this phenomenon. The choice of the right camera for a particular application can help to eliminate the undesirable effect or to put it to good use. Pixel count, refresh rate and sensitivity are the decisive criteria for photographers when purchasing a camera. But they are also of interest to life scientists and users of microscopes. Unfortunately, there is another criterion that is often overlooked: the noise behavior of the camera or, to be more precise: its signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Especially in professional applications, SNR is a major factor affecting image quality. Also, it is the characteristic that causes the greatest amount of misunderstanding.
