Correlative microscopy

Subject description

– Correlative microscopy with detailed insight into the structure and function of the same cells.

– Simultaneous observation of a given subcellular structure and cellular processes from the micron to the nanometer scale while maintaining spatial orientation.

– Labelling markers in correlative microscopy.

– Introduction to the different correlative microscopy approaches and their applications.

– The correct selection of the particular correlative microscopy approaches: their advantages and disadvantages.

Demonstration of the correlative microscopy from the methods of culturing the cells, methods in light and electron microscopy to the semi/fully automated sample analyses.
