10th Anniversary Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy Conference

Date: 12-15 August 2018

Venue: Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Pfotenhauer Straße 108, 01307 Dresden

arivis will attend the 10th LSFM as software provider for interactive 3D and 4D microscopy image visualization and analysis software for data of basically unlimited file sizes. We will be located in the 2nd floor Galleria of the institute.

Prior to the conference, the EMBO Practical Course on Light Sheet Microscopy is running on 2nd – 11th August 2018. For this event, we support the course in the form of arivis Vision4D software licenses, application specialists and also financial sponsorship.

About the Conference

Light sheet microscopy has emerged in the last 15 years as a powerful tool to interrogate living biological systems with unprecedented imaging speeds for as long as it takes. Large, fixed, cleared or expanded biological samples can be imaged with high resolution in a fraction of time compared to conventional microscopy approaches. When combined, the spatial coverage and temporal resolution leads to in toto recording of complex biological phenomena.

Light sheets opened entirely new windows into the inner workings of cells and organisms and re-invigorated several research fields including developmental and cell biology, physiology, neurobiology and biodiversity research. This conference marks the 10th Anniversary of Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (LSFM) meetings that started in 2009 in Dresden. It will bring together the technology developers and users of light sheets, showcase the latest light sheet set-ups and how to best deploy them for the benefit of the biological research community.

About the EMBO Practical course

The 3rd EMBO practical course on light sheet microscopy is held in Dresden between August 2nd and 11th 2018. This course teaches light sheet microscopy to the next generation of scientists who will present the results of their light sheet experiments at the conference. Additionally, a full range of commercial light sheet microscopy hardware used at the course will be demonstrated at the conference.

Explore Virtual Reality with arivis InViewR at LSFM!

arivis InViewR displays real image data in VR by utilizing patent pending direct volume rendering techniques with no need to convert data or make surface models.  The latest InViewR sets new standards for analyzing life science research images by enabling efficient, accurate, and interactive proofreading, proof-editing, and de-novo segmentation of multi-dimensional images from virtually any source instrument.
Freed from being tied to a mouse like on a desktop computer and with depth perception equivalent to the real word, a person’s hands are unencumbered to simply reach into the data to precisely and intuitively mark, measure, classify, edit, and segment.  
A cumbersome and frustrating process that on a desktop involves, multiple turns of the dataset, changing tools multiple times, guessing at which object is being selected, and iteratively positioning from different angles is reduced to simply reaching out and pulling a trigger or pushing a button.

With natural movements of the head and body a user can move freely to inspect and interact with an image from any angle and position without limitation.  These new insights, many impossible to perceive on a desktop system, can be used to evaluate existing hypotheses, create new ones, and generate appropriate data analysis strategies.
Segmentation tasks which ware usually enormously time consuming are easily and quickly done using arivis InViewR. Users are able to take images 80% segmented with automatic algorithms to 100% completion by using sculpting tools to add to, remove from, delete and join segments. Manual segmentation tasks that on a desktop took researchers weeks or months are completed in hours or days with increased accuracy using semi-automatic, point and shoot, and manual painting tools.
