Dundee Imaging Facility Seminar Series, 2018

This year the Dundee Imaging Facility workshop and seminar programme will run on Thursday afternoons for 10 weeks.  The programme begins with an overview of the facility and an introduction to the training series on the 1st of March at 2pm in the Small Lecture Theatre.  

You are welcome to dip in and out as your time and interests permit, but do bear in mind that if your microscopy experience is limited you may wish to attend some or all of weeks 1 to 4 to ensure you have a grasp of the basic principles.  

This week and new for 2018: Zeiss will join us to talk about the Zeiss LSM880 Airyscan microscope, which is now available to use in the Facility.  The Airyscan offers significant advantages to resolution and signal to noise over conventional laser scanning techniques (approx 140 nm lateral and 400 nm axial resolution, and a 4-fold improvement to signal to noise).
