Workshop Registration

Summer Workshop on BioAFM Microscopy 2023

About event

Correlative microscopy approaches provide unique insights into life sciences research with previously inaccessible data, including physical structure, biochemical interactions, and mechanical properties. Integrating AFM with advanced optical microscopy techniques delivers the highest quality results for quantitative live-cell mechanical property mapping, highest resolution molecular and cellular imaging, fast scanning of dynamic biological processes, and seamless. Our workshop will provide information and hands-on instruction - from the very basics of AFM technique to advanced applications of the technique on selected bio-samples, including practical demonstrations of measurements, even on samples that users bring in.

Please register via the registration form. Don't forget to pay the workshop fee at the Shopping Center MUNI. Links are below.
