The Analytical Power of Correlative Raman Imaging: New Developments, Tools and Applications
Description

Confocal Raman imaging is a powerful, versatile and increasingly common microscopy technique, capable of quickly identifying the molecules in a sample and visualizing their physical distribution three-dimensionally. This nondestructive and label-free chemical imaging method has enormous potential for researchers in many fields of application.

This webinar will introduce the fundamental principles of Raman microscopy and it will detail the associated hardware and software. Our speakers will describe several of its variations providing relevant application examples. Correlative microscopy will then be introduced, and details of Raman-AFM and Raman-SEM (RISE) microscopy solutions will be presented.

Key Learning Objectives
During this webinar, the speakers will present:

  • What Raman microscopy is, along with an introduction to its operational principles and hardware considerations.
  • Possibilities and new tools for Raman investigations including several application examples from various fields.
  • How correlative microscopy can provide a more complete understanding of a sample than techniques in isolation.

It provides all the benefits of a digital microscope integrated into a high-resolution measuring instrument. On top of that, with single button acquisition, it is extremely easy to use.

S wide

Large-area 3D optical system

 

The S wide is a large-area 3D optical system providing solutions in the following fields:

  • Advanced manufacturing
  • Archaeology and paleontology
  • Consumer electronics
  • Medical devices
  • Molding
  • Optics
  • Watches

S wide features

  • Sub-micron height repeatability over entire extended area
  • One shot height measurement up to 40 mm without Z scanning
  • Bi-telecentric lenses with very low field distortion providing accurate metrology
  • Form deviation from 3D CAD models, providing the geometric difference and tolerance measurement

FREE WEBINAR FROM ASYLUM RESEARCH on Application of Atomic Force Microscopy in Virology Research

WEBINAR DATE

Wednesday August 12, 2020
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT

Atomic Force Microscopy has found broad use in the biological sciences. It is an indispensable tool for both high resolution imaging of individual molecules, cells, tissues, viruses and biomaterials. Since AFM is also relatively non-destructive and requires minimal sample preparation (i.e. no coating/fixing/labeling), it is ideally suited to visualize
dynamic biomolecular processes at the nanoscale.
We will present relevant data to illustrate the potential of Asylum Research’s AFMs in virus research.

 

Sophia Hohlbauch, Senior Biological Applications Scientist @Asylum Research
Sophia Hohlbauch has over 20 years of AFM experience specializing in the life sciences. She is currently a Senior Biological Applications Scientist at Asylum Research and previously held a similar position at Digital Instruments/Veeco. She has presented on AFM topics at numerous biology and AFM meetings worldwide. Her background is biology, receiving Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Marine Biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Introduction, Ion Beams, MS/MS, and Materials Applications

 

FREE LIVE WEBINAR 

Thursday, May 14, 2020 – 10:00am (Chicago)

Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) is a powerful analytical technique that can provide elemental and molecular information with high sensitivity from the sample surface to tens of microns into the sample. Additionally, TOF-SIMS can produce chemical images with high spatial resolution (<70 nm). This is achieved by utilizing a variety of ion beams to either analyze (Binq+, Au nq+, C60q+, Ga+), sputter (O2+, Cs+, Ar+, large gas cluster Ar), or mill (Ga+ FIB) the sample. The most recent advancement in TOF-SIMS is the capability of MS/MS (i.e. tandem MS) which enables confident molecular identification. The flexibility of TOF-SIMS makes it a valuable tool to investigate a wide range of materials. This webinar will introduce the fundamentals of TOF-SIMS, discuss ion beams and MS/MS, and show materials applications.

Brookhaven Instruments – Guide to Making Useful Measurements of Monoclonal Antibodies (mAbs) with Dynamic Light Scattering

Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is a powerful technique that is amenable to measurement of biological samples, particularly proteins and biopolymers. One of the fastest growing classes of pharmaceutically active biologics are antibodies. These highly versatile proteins are used as the major functional element in immunoassays and other rapid diagnostics, in vaccine production, and as the primary component of a wide array of injectable protein drugs. In all these applications it is essential that antibodies remain intact, and monomeric. Failing to adhere to these strict and exacting standards compromises the processability, activity, and shelf stability of antibody-based products. When DLS is used to its full potential, aggregation of proteins can be detected and the size of monomeric protein can be determined to a very high degree of certainty. In order to demonstrate this principle, we compare aggregation studies conducted on pharmaceutical-grade monoclonal antibody (mAb), with results obtained for a common protein, serum albumin (BSA).
