In this next highly anticipated virtual edition of our See the Hidden Workshop Series, we dive into the ultrastructure of biological systems. We look at state-of-the-art Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM) methods to guide specimen preparation and high-resolution image acquisition in both a 2D and 3D context.

The first session focuses on hybrid Electron Microscopy workflows. Along with increased performance and productivity, these specimen preparation routes have clear advantages for volume imaging (3D FIB-SEM) and correlative microscopy (in-resin CLEM). Join us to discover the possibilities beyond chemical fixation.

The second session covers 3D correlation under cryogenic conditions, illustrating the benefits of cryo-confocal microscopy to guide specimen preparation for high-resolution cryo-TEM. Join us as we explore the potential of correlative cryo-electron tomography to study autophagy.

Both sessions will conclude with an interactive panel discussion between the speakers.

This online event features live panelists from the University of Oxford and Max Planck Institutes for Multidisciplinary Sciences (Göttingen) and Biochemistry (Munich), as well as Advanced Workflow Specialists from Leica Microsystems. We bring together a series of scientific talks and microscopy showcases focusing on the methodologies and workflows required for advanced correlative techniques and ultrastructural imaging.

The program centers around three specific areas in ultrastructural microscopy and CLEM:

  • Volume Electron Microscopy and Cryo-FIB SEM
  • Correlative microscopy for in-resin fluorescence
  • Cryo-confocal CLEM
