Fluorescence microscopy is one of the most commonly employed techniques in cell biology. Data from fluorescence imaging offers the benefit of both spatial and temporal resolution as well as multi-parametric analysis of cells in heterogenous populations. This technical seminar will provide an introduction to fluorescence, discussion of the properties of fluorescent dyes and proteins. Strategies for engineering fluorophores to optimize them for imaging applications will be described using recently developed technologies to illustrate these approaches. Considerations for labeling live and fixed cells will be presented with an emphasis onsuper-resolution microscopy.

|September 12, 2014: Chemical identification and surface measurements on nanoparticles using the NanoTweezer||Seminar: Optofluidics - NanoTweezer Technology||In this talk, Dr. Abbey Weith overview Optofluidics’ NanoTweezer
Technology, the first commercial system capable of performing chemical identification and direct surface measurements on single nanoparticles in solution. Using proprietary nanophotonic devices and microfluidics, the NanoTweezer works by directly optically trapping small scale objects in solution and analyzing their scattered light, enabling the system to extract meaningful physical and chemical parameters. Unlike traditional free space optical traps which are light diffraction limited and thus can only influence dielectric objects larger than a hundred nanometers in size, the NanoTweezer technology is powered by proprietary nanophotonic waveguides which are engineered to exert stronger optical forces via light confinement and resonance, enabling a technological leap in trapping and analysis capability. The talk will cover the technology’s working principles (including waveguide capturing and single particle Raman spectroscopy) and its applications to nanomedicine, nanotoxicology and other fields. The system iscommercially available in Germany.

|August 18 - 29 2014: EMBO Course on Light Sheet Microscopy||EMBO Practical Course Light Sheet Microscopy||ABOUT THE PRACTICAL COURSE
Light-sheet microscopy is an emerging technology that enables imaging of biological specimens with minimal photo-damage. It opens new avenues to study cell biological and developmental processes with unprecedented imaging speed. It also facilitates systems biology approaches by quantitative imaging of entire living systems. Light-sheet microscopy has only recently left the optical tables of technology developers and became more broadly available through commercial and open-access platforms. This EMBO Practical Course will comprehensively introduce the light sheet microscopy paradigm to the new generation of scientists.Visit the website: http://events.embo.org/14-lsm/

Resolving biological processes often relies on increasing the contrast by staining with e.g. fluorescent dyes. This labeling step can perturb the specimen and is often not desired e.g. in investigations in vivo. Vibrational spectroscopy, such as Raman and infrared spectroscopy, is a label free technique that provides direct molecular and structural information. The spectra of these complementary methods are hence referred to as molecular fingerprint. Infrared spectroscopy imaging and Coherent anti Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) are relatively new techniques for a very fast and sensitive label-free microscopy of cells and tissues.We will present applications of these fast, label-free and in vivo techniques, among others for studying spinal cord regeneration in several animal models (rat, axolotl) and for observing tumor cells both in vivo and in cell culture.

This is the second seminar of our “Biopolis Dresden Imaging Platform (BioDIP) seminar series” focused on microscopy-driven research with talks given by:
Proteins and their interactions are of central importance in biology, e.g. in every signalling cascade. Fluorescence (Cross-)Correlation Spectroscopy (F(C)CS) offers the possibility to investigate proteins and their interactions live, both in vitro and in vivo. To achieve that, F(C)CS analyzes the movement of fluorescent particles into and out of a focal volume at a confocal microscope and can deduce several parameters from this analysis. (1) FCS measures the mobility and concentration of a fluorescently tagged molecule of interest and thereby provides information about protein concentrations and associations. (2) FCCS uses two, fluorescently tagged molecules and yields quantitative data describing the interaction of these molecules (dissociation constant). In the BioDIP seminar we will span the range from the investigation of protein complexes in solution to measurements of protein interaction in the membrane of the living embryo. If you are curious to learn how you can use F(C)CS for probing the dynamics/interactions of your protein of interest, join us for the seminar and the discussion afterwards.
