Applications in Fluorescence Microscopy Symposium

The Applications in Fluorescence Microscopy Symposium will be held at the Bio21 Institute on Tuesday 1st October 2019.

The Symposium will highlight a number of high-end applications, including confocal, lightsheet, high-content imaging and super-resolution microscopy used by researchers in their studies.

Symposium: 1-5pm, Tuesday 1st October 2019. Bio21 Institute Auditorium, 30 Flemington Road, Parkville, The University of Melbourne.

Registration: Free and open to all. Registration is now closed.

Sponsorship: The symposium is kindly sponsored by ATA Scientific, Coherent, DKSH, Leica Microsystems, Olympus Australia, Thermo Fisher & Carl Zeiss Australia.
