Cellular Biology Applications of NanoSIMS 50L Webinar

Monday, February 17, 2020

The unique couple Sensitivity/Spatial Resolution of the NanoSIMS 50L permits to map elements or molecules containing specific elements inside cells, that are inaccessible using other imaging techniques.

Part 1 of the webinar "NanoSIMS 50L Applications in Cellular Biology" is dedicated to trace elements and metal-based drugs in cells.
After a short introduction to the specifics of biological sample preparation, a selection of recent studies using NanoSIMS are reviewed, including:
  • Detection of copper in retina photoreceptors of zebrafish
  • Subcellular localisation of metals in Arabidopsis thaliana leaf cells
  • Mapping of cisplatin in ovarian cancer cultured cells
  • Anticancer gold-based drug development
  • and more!
Presenter: François Horreard, CAMECA
Duration: 31 minutes

Part 2 is dedicated to Nano-object imaging and molecular imaging with elemental tracers.
After a short introduction to the specifics of biological sample preparation, a selection of recent studies using NanoSIMS are reviewed, including:
  • Food-grade TiO2 nanoparticle toxicology study
  • Silver nanoparticle interactions with green Alga
  • Multiplexed ion beam imaging (MIBI) of human breast tumors
  • and more!
Presenter: François Horreard, CAMECA
