Winter is coming!
The facility is expanding with two new cryoTEMs, we are therefore hiring a new staff member to take care of all structural biology related applications and the look after the new TEMs
A new set of renovation will take place in the Bio21 Advanced Microscopy Facility starting the 7th of August
We will have the Leica Digital LightSheet (DLS) Microscope on Demo from 4th May for three weeks.
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 lastest, and hopefully last, upgrade on the TF30 has now been almost finalized. The microscope is back up and running and open for booking.
We have finalised plans for our Optical Microscopy workshops for 2017. These include BOMP101: Basics of Fluorescence Microscopy, FIJI for Beginners, FIJI for Quantification, Colocalisation and Imaris Workshops. See the below flyer for dates and topics.
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.
