Workshop “Confocal Microscopy – Live imaging: Practical course”


On 18th and 19th of June 2013, Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology organized the Workshop “Confocal Microscopy – Live imaging: Practical course” which was focused on advanced microscopy techniques /in vivo/. The first part of the Workshop included Lectures, given by the experienced specialists in advanced imaging confocal techniques. The practical part of the workshop included:

• Visualization, analysis and reconstruction of 3D images with Auto Quant and Imaris softwares.
• Studies of intracellular processes using Spinning Disc Microscope.
• Recording of fast processes in cells using resonance scanner (Leica TCS SP5).
• Cells migration and adhesion study – DIC contrast and Interference Reflection Microscopy.
• Technics of the calcium signaling measurement – fluorescence microscopy.

The WORKSHOP was founded by EU FP7 BIO-IMAGINE: BIO-IMAGing in research INnovation and Education, GA no. 264173.
