Life happens in 3D – and understanding biological context in the three dimensions has been a major driver in light microscopy in the past decades. In the process 3D imaging technologies such as confocal scanning microscopy have become standard in every modern biosciences lab.
Today the trend to 3D continues towards highest resolution with modern field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) based techniques enabling previously thought impossible insights to structural information. Automated FE-SEM technology has made a change to the way scientists approach 3D EM volumetric imaging by allowing for larger and thus more complex data sets. In the race to 3D understanding Correlative Microscopy is a key enabler activating the link between function and structure.
ZEISS in collaboration with the BioImaging Core Facility at the VIB Ghent are proud to host this joint workshop and scientific meeting on Correlative Microscopy and volume SEM. The meeting is centered around scientific sessions covering a broad range of correlative microscopy and SEM methods including data management and analysis. In addition participants will have the opportunity to join instrument workshops and round table discussions.
Participants are encouraged to present their own scientific work in poster or oral presentations. A scientific panel will review abstracts submitted for oral presentation.
Don’t miss this exciting platform for exchange with researchers and industry to explore the new and emerging technologies and methods for correlative microscopy and 3D SEM in the life sciences.
