Happy new year to you all from the team at the Bio21 Advanced Microscopy Facility. The year has started well for us with a new staff member and two new microscopes. But we needed to give you a quick update on a few things:
We are welcoming Dr Andrew Leis among the staff of the Bio21 Advanced Microscopy Facility. Andrew's primary responsability will be the new cryoTEM Talos Arctica.
New Year, New Toys (read toys as "Vital research equipment")
Winter is coming!
To be able to invest in the future and get new toys we need to show our investors (the University of Melbourne, ARC, NHMRC, other research institutions ...) that the output generated by the Bio21 AMF is significant.
The Bio21 Institute and the Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Society bring you a new seminar series on new instrumentation and techniques with one seminar per month. Keep an eye on that space for dates.
After a successfull LIEF17 bid two new cryoTEMs will join the Bio21 AMF family in July 2017, a FEI Talos Arctica for single particle cryoEM and a Talos L120C for sample screening. Both benefit from the latest generation of automation.
