Confocal Microscopy Course: University of York April 2-5
Mar 27 2019
Introduction: An intensive, hands-on, four-day training course in the rapidly developing techniques of confocal microscopy.
The course will initially cover basic confocal but then swiftly move on to the more advanced techniques such as FRAP, FRET and spectral unmixing. Over the four days, all participants will have used four different confocal set-ups; Zeiss LSM880 Airyscan FAST, LSM780 MP and LSM 710 on inverted microscopes, and an Andor Dragonfly spinning disk confocal. To demonstrate each technique, a wide range of both samples (plants to cell culture) and labels (antibody to fluorescent proteins) will be used. Participants are welcome to bring their own samples.
The course is taught by academic and research staff of the University of York Technology Facility and specialists from Zeiss and Andor. The University of York is pleased to present the course in collaboration with Carl Zeiss and Andor.
Based on nearly 15 years, it is anticipated that participants will come from both academia and industry throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
Course Benefits: This intensive, four-day training course will be of value to anyone wanting to gain hands-on experience of modern confocal techniques. Participants are encouraged to bring their own samples. In addition to the hands-on component, the course will include tutorials on the theory and practice of all the techniques and methods covered, as well as many other relevant topics in the field.
