ALMF Essentials in Microscopy I course goes online
ALMF is happy to announce that the Essential in Microscopy I (Essentials in Widefield-Microscopy) course will be available again. The course will be fully online and takes place on December 3rd from 1:00 PM- 6:00 PM (GMT+1)
The course is a beginner’s course covering the essential knowledge needed to conduct a widefield microscopy-based experiment and to generate reliable data.
The microscopy knowledge covered in the Essentials of Microscopy course I is mandatory for introductions into ALMF Widefield-microscopes. We strongly suggest taking this course, if you want to use ALMF Widefield-microscopes.
Please check the course page (https://bio-it.embl.de/events/essentials-i-ess…icroscopy-online/ ) for additional information and registration.
If you have any questions, please talk to us or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).

We are happy to announce the Nikon A1R HD25 as new point scanning confocal microscope in the ALMF. It features a large field of view covering around 2x the area of other confocal microscopes, as well as a resonant scanner scanning with up to 30 frames per second. In combination with the 200 µm Z-Piezo large volumes can be scanned at high speeds. All common dyes can be imaged with the 405nm, 488nm, 561nm and 640nm lasers.
On the software side, the Nikon A1 includes the Nikon JOBs and General Analysis 3 module which allow for automation, high-throughput and also certain feedback microscopy experiments.
|1 October 2020||
We welcome our new colleague: Manuel Gunkel worked on single molecule localization based super-resolution microscopy techniques in his PhD at the Kirchhoff Institute for Physics, Uni HD and collected experience in high-throughput and high-content imaging, point-scanning and spinning-disc confocal microscopy as well as in feedback microscopy and in bioimage analysis during his time in the Advanced Biological Screening Facility at BioQuant, Uni HD. In the ALMF his main focus will be the support of our users for confocal imaging and the application and advancement of our feedback microscopy based imaging pipelines.
