High End Automation and Live Cell Microscopy

ZEISS Workshop

June 12 – 13, 2018

Erlangen | Optical Imaging Centre Erlangen (OICE)

It‘s a great pleasure to invite you to the ZEISS Workshop High End Automation and Live Cell Microscopy on June 12 – 13, 2018 to introduce new microscopy solutions.
The workshop provides a forum for researchers and confocal microscopists in talks, hands-on sessions and discussions to test
approaches and instrumentation for advanced imaging applications. We have taken the recent announcement of the ZEISS LSM 8 Family
with its revolutionary Airyscan detector module together with the introduction of our first automated inverted microscope, that shall
enable participants to quickly get an overview of current applications and the most recent instrumentation.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Erlangen!
