Clearing and expansion microscopy course at Scilife in September!

Expansion microscopy and clearing are fantastic tools for anyone who images thick (> 1 cell diameter) fixed samples. We are now lucky to have access to state of the art talks and hands-on workshops at Scilife in September. Register early not to be disappointed!

Please apply to Hans (first day) and David (second day) directly!

Neubias workshop for image analysis at the heart of Scotland!

Here is where to register for the next Neubias, the European Image Analysis school! Learn how to build your own image analysis pipeline with expert help! 🙂

Only a few days left to register!

Alyona’s videos

Alyona Minina from the Confocal microscopy facility at SLU came up with really nice videos about Zen and how to use Zeiss confocals

Have a look!

Microscopy workshop in Stockholm

Our infamous Hans Blom from the Advanced Light Microscopy facility at Scilife, is organizing a workshop at the end of this month.

Light sheet, super resolution and FCS on the menu, talks and demos.

Have a look at the program. 🙂

How to kill your fear of image analysis?

Neubias is a European effort to get biologists comfortable with image analysis. conferences (Hungary, Jan 2018), courses, facility staff training, ‘biologists meet analysts’ meetings… They have it all!

Now this is your chance to learn and get help to analyze images for your microscopy project! Check the Neubias conference and courses in Hungary!

And if you would like to work with microscopy in the future, remember to join the ELMI (European Light Microscopy Initiative) so you get all their job announcements! 🙂

Imaris User Group Meeting in Basel

Would you like to boost your knowledge about Imaris, learn loads of tipes and get expert help with your pipeline? Join the Imaris User Group Meeting in Basel at the end of June!

 

Xiaowei Zhuang’s visit!

Great news! Xiaowei Zhuang from Harvard University will visit us on the 31st of May!

On top of the STORM super resolution technique, her lab recently came up the MERFISH technique -a multiplexing-based in situ RNA sequencing-, as well as a FRET-based method to study Protein-DNA transient interactions during replication, transcription…

Check here her projects and mind-blowing ‘selected’ publication list.

Come and listen to her talk on Wednesday, May 31 at 10.00-11.00. Main lecture Hall 4th Floor, Novum, Flemingsberg

”Illuminating biology at the nanoscale and systems scale using single-molecule and super-resolution imaging”.

Hope to see you there! 🙂

iBiology Microscopy course

This course about light microscopy is made of videos only! It is very complete, very interesting and very well done!

Point Spread Function? Fourier transform? Image formation? Resolution? Everything about light microscopy you wish you had learned earlier! 🙂

Great microscopy app!

Do your bit as a microscopy geek and download a great app called Resolution!

You can enter your objective of choice (magnification and NA) and get for the wavelength of your choice loads of useful information like the resolution in xy and z the optional sampling step…
But if you REALLY want to enter thegeek club, you must also get the Fourier Filter app! Hours of geeking fun ahead of you! 😉

The LCI newsletter goes socially medial! :)

On top of its shiny new MicroscopyKarolinska.se blog, the LCI facility now has an LCI Facility Facebook account with a Microscopy@KI group.

Microscopy@KI is a public group so anyone with a Fb account can participate. Please use it as a light microscopy forum and post any light microscopy related question/answer, suggestion, announcement…  The idea is for us all microscopy fans to share with each other loads of cool microscopy tips! B-)

And don’t forget to tell us at the LCI about the light microscope events you organize, cool new products for sample preparation you tried… so we can put them up on our blog and on Facebook!
