Molecular Imaging Center (MIC)

Live Imaging and Super-resolution Microscopy Course

The NorMIC Oslo node consisting of the IMBV (IBV) Imaging facility and OUS Confocal Core Facility will arrange a two-day practical user course in live cell imaging and super-resolution microscopy. The course is primarily for participants that already have started to use imaging and need live cell imaging in their work. There will be given theoretical lectures on confocal, super-resolution and TIRF microscopy and in addition image processing and analysis. The practical part will include hands on training at the Olympus FV1000 confocal microscope, the new Leica TIRF microscope and the new Delta Vision OMX super-resolution system. It will be possible to bring and test your own samples. The course is for researchers, postdocs, PhD students and master students.
