Confocal Microscopy+ 4-Day Hands-On course, 24-27 March 2020, York, UK
Thankfully, *no change* in visa rules
for the upcoming course.
Our highly successful international
4-Day Intensive Hands-On Course will run again on 24-27 March 2020.
Running for over 15 years, with over 400 delegates to date and with 100% recommended feedback, the course is run in the Bioscience Technology Facility, University of York which is based in the welcoming, friendly and historic city of York. York itself is one of the UK’s best tourist places due to its Roman, Viking, Medieval and current importance with buildings, streets and museums to match (see https://www.visityork.org/members/about-us/award-winning-york).
The course includes many varied sample
types that are used to best illustrate various practical aspects of confocal
microscopy whilst also demonstrating a range of applications.
Tutorials and practical sessions will
cover both basic and advanced confocal microscopy. The course will enable
participants to realise the potential behind many developing confocal
techniques and realise the simplicity of applying the techniques to a broad
range of sample types and fluorescent labels. Both novice and more experienced
users welcome. This course is 100% recommended from previous course delegates
and comments can be seen below.
Day 1: Basics, Familiarisation, x,y,z
and multicolour imaging.
Day 2: Live-cell imaging with spinning
disk confocal microscopy, FRAP on laser scanning confocal.
Day 3: Advanced Techniques covering
spectral unmixing and FRET with fluorescent proteins.
Day 4: Super-resolution and other
advances in confocal and associated microscopy approaches. More samples to
explore airy scanning approaches and confocal limits, and time for participants
Thursday evening will include a
highlights talk on new developments and course meal.
The course will utilise many different
sample types ranging from cultured monolayers to plant cells. A diverse range
of fluorescent labels will also be used, which will include various fluorescent
proteins and classic antibody labels. Over the four days, at least four
confocal microscopes (Zeiss LSM 710/780/880/980 Airyscan FAST on both invert
and upright microscopes, and the Andor Dragonfly) will be utilised.
Accommodation (en-suite), breakfast and
lunches will be provided for the length of the course. Evening meals will be provided on both
Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Places are limited to 12 participants to
permit full hands-on practice, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
