  • RMS Getting the Most from your Confocal Course

    20 and 21 July 2017
    York – United Kingdom

    This 2 day RMS annual confocal course utilises many different sample types and fluorescent probes (DNA stains, classic antibody labels and fluorescent proteins) which are chosen to best demonstrate particular problems and techniques. Focus is always on the techniques they enable and the problems they generate, which will be applicable to any sample types. The 2-days consist of short tutorials followed by hands-on practice.
    Day 1 takes participants through the basic principles of confocal microscopy and then trains through hands-on practice how to configure and image multicolour, multidimensional samples using a confocal microscope.
    Day 2 builds on the experiences of day 1 and enables participants to try FRAP and spectral profiling.
