Nanolive is inviting researchers with an interest in 3D cell imaging to submit a short research proposal to win a free 6-month loan of one of our 3D Cell Explorer microscopes. Proposals should focus on non-fluorescence based imaging that will benefit from the unique strengths of the 3D Cell Explorer microscope. You can find more information on how to apply at our website (the deadline is November 29th at midnight).
The winner will be announced during our symposium at ASCB | EMBO 2017 on Monday December 4th (4:15-5:15 pm, Theater 2, Learning Center) where we will introduce our technology and its implications for live cell research. Please, find the abstract below.
If you are not attending ASCB | EMBO 2017 you can still participate in our competition, and, in case of success you will be notified by email.
We hope to see you at our booth #1110 at ASCB | EMBO 2017!
A marker-free technology to analyze living cell’s internal structure and organelles in 3D, at high temporal and spatial resolution
Presenter: Dr. Yann Cotte (co-founder and CEO) & Dr. Mathieu Frechin (Senior Researcher – Applications & Image Analysis)
Holographic-tomographic microscopy is an emerging and powerful new imaging approach that will revolutionize 3D live cell imaging. It allows researchers to characterize cells, organelles and cell dynamics by refractive index variations, with truly no phototoxicity. The 3D Cell Explorer offers a versatile platform for in vitro live cell imaging. It acquires every second a complete 3D image of cells (bacteria, yeast, protozoa, mammalian) and tissues, combined with cellular environment control and fluorescence imaging. Long-term (for weeks) time-lapse imaging enables users to perform continuous quantification of single cells. New hardware and software features offer a complete solution from cellular environment control, over non-invasive 3D image acquisition to post-processing analysis and will be announced in world premiere!
