3D Printing Paper Published!

The Heit lab is excited to announce that our newest paper has been accepted for publication in Biochemistry and Cell Biology. This paper presents a method for using fused deposition modelling (3D printing) to produce customized chambers for microscopy-based experiments. This technology allows for scientists to design an imaging chamber that exactly meets the requirements …

Spaceships!

The Heit lab is excited to share our 3D printed “spaceships” with the microscopy community. These are live cell imaging chambers (Leiden chambers) which hold an 18 mm circular coverslip plus enough media to keep cells alive over 24 hours of imaging. These can be easily modified with free CAD software to add features such …

SRRF Imaging

One of the best parts of science is bringing new techniques and technologies into your lab. Our newest technique is SRRF imaging, which can more than double the resolution of nearly any widefield microscope, and can even be employed on living samples. The improvement this technology adds can be seen in the images of bovine …
