Super Resolution Microscopy Workshop

Super-Resolution Microscopy is a fluorescence microscopy technique that allows researchers to gain much better insights into their samples by breaking the diffraction limits that had previously limited image resolution in confocal/widefield microscopy.

Description


The Biological Optical Microscopy Platform at the University of Melbourne is holding a Super-Resolution Microscopy Workshop at the Bio21 Institute on Friday 14th November 2014.

Super-Resolution Microscopy is a fluorescence microscopy technique that allows researchers to gain much better insights into their samples by breaking the diffraction limits that had previously limited image resolution in confocal/widefield microscopy. This workshop will cover the following topics:
  1. The theory behind the super-resolution microscopy methods (3D-SIM, dSTORM, PALM, STED, Airyscan)
  2. Provide insight into sample preparation for two methods (3D-SIM & dSTORM)
  3. Hands on imaging time on the Bio21 Institute’s OMX Blaze microscope (3D-SIM and dSTORM).
  4. Attendees will get free imaging time for the month of December to try out their own samples

Registration for the the workshop is free and is open to all researchers.
