It’s the little things that make life interesting, right?
If so, faculty and staff interested in researching the smallest things in a big universe might want to use the new state-of-the-art Zeiss LSM 880 confoccal microscope with Airyscan, which was recently acquired by the Cellular and Molecular Imaging Facility (CMIF) with a grant from the National Science Foundation.
CMIF is also offering two upcoming informational and training sessions on how to use the high-powered device.
At noon on Monday, May 8, Zeiss training specialist Oliver Tress will discuss and highlight the capabilities of the new instrument and answer questions about its suitability for various research projects. The talk will be in the Stephens Room at 3503 Thomas Hall.
From 1-5 p.m. on Thursday, May 25, CMIF will have an open house to show off the microscope in action, including various demonstrations on its capabilities. Researchers are encouraged to bring samples.
More information about the specific optics and modules that are available on the LSM880 will be posted on the CMIF website.
