Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy

BergmanLabora and BioNordika hosts a seminar/demonstration event in advanced fluorescence microscopy.

Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy days are arranged during the year, in various locations in Sweden. 

Please feel free to contact us for more info about upcoming arrangements. During 2016 we will make arrangements in:

  • Nikon Center of Excellence, Dept of Nutrition and Health, KI/KTH at south campus in Huddinge
  • Göteborgs Universitet, Medicinaregatan 3
  • Lund University, BMC

BergmanLabora and BioNordika hosts a seminar/demonstration event in advanced fluorescence microscopy. We will present the techniques available at the Nikon Center of Excellence in Huddinge run by Sylvie Le Guyader, manager of the Live Cell Imaging facility/Nikon Center of Excellence.

Seminars will be also be given by Cell Signaling Technology, a leader in antibodies for pathway analysis and Andor Technology, a leader in scientific cameras. A range of systems will be available for demonstration purposes. Leading experts will be on-hand to answer questions on a broad range of microscopy applications

The following program is an example of the day set up:

Seminar program:

  • The Live Cell Imaging unit: advanced confocal microscopy facility in Flemingsberg - Sylvie Le Guyader, Manager of the Nikon Center of Excellence at KI/KTH
  • Immunofluorescence for the study of cellular processes: Possibilities and considerations - Dr Laura Schneider, Product Specialist, Cell Signaling Technology (Boston, MA)
  • Fast and Sensitive Cameras for a range of Microscopy Applications - Dr Orla Hanrahan, Life Science Imaging, Application Specialist, Andor Technologies (Belfast, UK)

Obligatory free registration to marie.andersson@bergmanlabora.se or phone: 08-625 18 07

Lunch and Fika is included
