3i imaging workshop

This September we are testing an advanced spinning disk system, which configuration can be customized and will be specialized in long term high spatial/temporal resolution live cell imaging. The company that produced this microscope is 3i (see flyer below).
Practical microscopy sections will be held between 06.09-2021 and 10-09.2021, however, please join our webinar that will be take place the 02.09 at 1 PM in order to understand the potential of the presented microscope and eventually consider to prepare a testing sample.

In details, the access to the webinar will be granted by connection to Dr. Failla's webex room: the 02.09 at 1 pm. All of you and every one you think it might be interested are warmly invited.
Please send Dr. Failla a feedback email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you plan to join the webinar.
