Image Description
Raw_and DeconvWF.jpg Deconvolution of cell-cell junctions of MDCK cells. MDCK (Madin-Darby Canine Kidney) cells cultured for 3 days, were stained for p120-catenin (mCherry - red) and Claudin3 (EGFP-green), and imaged with a Nikon Ti widefield microscope (Objective 40x; 1.3 NA oil lens). Shown are a single slice of the original z-stack either background-corrected (left) or deconvolved with Huygens (right).

Deconvolved and surface rendered mitochodria overlaid with MIP rendered nuclei and DIC image of fibroblast cell Fibroblast cells stained for mitochondria and nuclei. 20x air (0.7 NA) Leica widefield image of living human fibroblast cells stained for mitochondria (Mitotracker green, Invitrogen Inc.) and nuclei (Hoechst). Z stack fluorescent channels were deconvolved in Huygens Essential, then the mitochondrial channel was processed in Object Analyzer to identify the number of mitochondrial objects per cell. Resulting objects were separately color coded and overlaid with a maximum projection of the nuclei, and the in focus DIC image.

Before (left) and after deconvolution (right) images were merged to display the power of deconvolution. The Power of Deconvolution. Experimental point spread functions were generated for the red, green, and blue channels on an epifluorescence microscope and then used to deconvolve a standard Invitrogen Floucells #1 prepared slide, containing bovine pulmonary artery endothelial cells stained for mitochondria (red), F-actin (green), and nuclei (blue). Before (left) and after (right) deconvolution images were merged side by side to display the power of deconvolution.

Chromatic shift blue vs red dyes. Stained centromeric satelite repeat regions Chromatic shift between blue and red channel. A chromatic shift between blue and red stained centromeric satellite repeat regions can be clearly distinguished. Chromatic shift can be corrected by using the Huygens Chromatic Shift Corrector.

raji_large.png Jurkat T-cell making contact with a Raji B-cell, stained for Raji cytosol (FURA-2, blue), T-cell receptor (anti-CD3 Alexa647, green), and Actin (Lifeact-mRFPruby, red) Left: Maximum intensity projections (XZ, XY, ZY) of the original data, imaged using a Zeiss Cell Observer HS system at 37ºC with a 40x Fluor 1.3 oil lens. This is a single frame from a time lapse acquisition. Right: Deconvolved using Huygens Essential. In the time series a ring-like pattern of Actin and a bulls-eye pattern of CD3 can be seen, accumulating at the contact-site (the immunolgical synapse). Both structures gave us a hint that the T-cell was activated properly."

cells_sfp_large.png SFP rendering of a cell cluster. The XY and XZ slices in the previous images are part of this dataset. In the SFP volume rendering algorithm the data is taken as a distribution of fluorescent dye. By modeling a physical light/matter interaction process an image is computed showing the data as it would have appeared in reality when viewed under these conditions.

The original data is recorded by Dr. Nicolas Fête, Laboratory of Stem Cells Dynamics, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne.

filaments_large.png 4Pi two-photon image of F-actin filaments of a mouse skin fibroblast cell. Left: a 'conventional' confocal image. Right: the restored 4Pi two-photon image. Both 3D-images were recorded at the same site of the specimen to allow a direct comparison of both methods. The F-actin fibers are directed along the Y-axis, i.e., perpendicular to the axial image. The 4Pi-confocal restored image reveals more details of the object than the confocal counterpart as a result of the improved 3D-resolution. The actin fiber in the center is substantially better resolved. The axial FWHM resolution in the restored 4Pi image was shown to be 70nm.
