3i Spinning Disk April Demonstration
Special thanks to 3i (intelligent imaging innovations) for bringing out their spinning disk instrument to QBI for demonstration in April. The data generated during this time is now available on the server and includes large tissue montages and overnight 4D imaging of neuronal development.
Zeiss LightSheet Microscope Demonstration
Zeiss are bring their new Lightsheet microscope to UQ next week.
Workshops will take place at The Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB), Building 80, The University of Queensland, from 6th – 17th of May. Both morning and afternoon sessions are available. RSVP today to reserve your place.
