Free Leica Webinar – Fluorescent Probes and Digital Imaging: Where We Are and Where We’re Going


Event Date: June 12, 2013

Event Time: 12:00pm EST, 9:00am PST

The discovery of green fluorescent protein a half century ago heralded a new and explosive era in microscopy, forever changing the landscape for biology imaging. The ability to fuse a genetically encoded fluorescent probe to an almost-unlimited variety of proteins has enabled scientists to investigate signaling pathways and the movement of intracellular proteins in living cells with unprecedented detail, particularly when coupled with powerful widefield fluorescence and confocal microscopy techniques. Today, using the expanded selection of probes now available, researchers can even monitor multiple proteins simultaneously, in real time. This webinar will investigate how fluorescent protein probes are currently being utilized for live cell imaging, with a focus on applications in cancer research and where newly developed probes might take us in the near future.During this webinar, the panel of experts will:

  • Outline the current advances in fluorescent protein probes
  • Discuss how fluorescent probes are currently being used to image intracellular processes in live cells across a range of cancer research applications
  • Investigate the potential of new probe technology such as biosensors, photoswitchable probes, and probes emitting in the far-red and infrared portions of the spectrum
  • Answer your questions live and in real time!
