Zeiss V20 Stereo

The V20 is a stereomicroscope for generating publication quality images and offers various methods of sample illumination; from above using the fully programmable ring light or from below. It is attached to a high resolution colour camera and is operated through the PC using Axiovision software. A key function of the V20 is the extended-depth-of-field acquisition where all out of focus data is removed from a large z-stack giving a single in-focus image.

New insights could help plants fortify walls against root pathogens

Sep 03, 2020

Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) researchers, as part of a multidisciplinary international team, have uncovered a mechanism controlling subtle changes to the architecture of cell walls in plant roots that bolsters their defence against Phytophthora palmivora without negatively affecting plant growth.

Cells in tight spaces – how the cytoskeleton responds to different cell geometries

Jul 09, 2020

Inside every living cell, there is a network of protein filaments providing an interior scaffold controlling the cell’s shape called the cytoskeleton. Research from the Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) suggests that this relationship might actually be two-way, with cell geometry itself having the capacity to influence the organisation of the cytoskeleton in living plant cells.
