Hands-on Confocal Course, 4-7 April 2017, University of York, UK


Confocal microscopy course

4-7 April 2017

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 LSM780 and LSM710 on inverted microscopes, a Zeiss LSM510 on an upright microscope, and an Andor Revolution XD 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.

Introduction

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 delegates from the 2015 and 2016 courses, it is anticipated that participants will come from both academia and industry throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
