Webinar: From Correlated, High-Resolution Imaging of Single Biomolecules to Investigating Cell Mechanics
(Nanowerk News) Bruker will hold a free webinar "From Correlated, High-Resolution Imaging of Single Biomolecules to Investigating Cell Mechanics",
with guest speaker Dr. Hermann Schillers, Institute of Physiology, University of Münster, Germany, on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at these times: USA 8:00 a.m. PDT / 11:00 a.m. EDT / 15:00 GMT

The BioScope Resolve™, Bruker’s latest advancement for biological research is specifically designed to integrate and synchronize with optical microscopy, including fluorescence, confocal microscopy, and super-resolution imaging.
We will describe how the BioScope Resolve is:
providing new methods of studying cell mechanical properties
investigating the mechanisms involved in mechanotransduction
enabling routine visualization of a wide range of biomolecules, from the major and minor grooves of the DNA double helix to monolayers of living cells, under near-physiological conditions
In fact, we will present the first images of the very soft and flexible microvilli obtained on the membrane surface of living cells by AFM and discuss the observed force-dependency of these structures.
We hope you will join our own Dr. Andrea Slade and guest speaker Dr. Hermann Schillers as they share recent results from BioScope Resolve’s high-resolution, three-dimensional imaging capabilities.
