Hello, my name is Heiko Gäthje. My expertise in widefield and confocal fluorescence microscopy and image processing of 3D data began when working as a biologist – I focused on neuronal development of insects and the structure of sialic acid binding neuronal proteins in mammals.

I joined Olympus in 2004 and I have been a microscopy trainer at the Olympus Academy since 2008, where I am responsible for the conception and introduction of digital learning tools. I also support and conduct microscopy training courses at the EMBL Heidelberg and the Zurich Winter School on Advanced Microscopy where I answer a lot of questions related to image processing and image analysis.

Digital Image Processing: Point and Local Operation Filters (Encore Edition)

Experts

Senior Trainer, Training Academy
Want to get a better understanding of digital image processing techniques? Then watch our Ask the Experts webinar rerun on July 29, where we discuss how point and local operation filters can be used to control sources of error such as noise or low contrast in microscopy images. As well as exploring the mathematics behind image processing techniques such as segmentation, extraction and thresholding, our expert Heiko will also discuss the ethics of image processing – helping you judge whether specific techniques are allowed.

Digital Image Processing Part 2: Advanced Image Processing Filter

Experts

In our first webinar on this topic, we learnt that images taken with a light microscope are never quite a perfect reflection of our samples. There are always sources of error, and as we can only minimize such errors, the raw data of an imaging experiment will often need some digital image processing before final image analysis.

Images captured with a light microscope are never true representations of the specimen; there are always sources of error that must be controlled. In this webinar, we will discuss how these sources of error can be managed.
