Event Description

In collaboration with the Optical Biology Core, we are excited to host a ZEISS On Your Campus (ZOYC) at University of California, Irvine on June 25 – 27. ZOYC is a free, educational workshop for scientists and their students who use microscopes.

ZOYC is composed of both lectures and hands-on exercises with two main goals:

1. Provide education focused on better utilization of your current microscopy equipment, which can lead to:

  • Higher quality imaging and faster time to results
  • A better understanding of the data that are collected
  • Improved experimental design

2. Bring awareness of new and emerging microscopy trends and technologies.

This ZOYC will focus on best imaging practices for Life Sciences. Join our symposium to learn how you can get the best imaging on your current system and then practice your new skills during our hands-on sessions. These sessions will feature the following equipment:

ZEISS LSM 980 with Airyscan 2.0 Multiplex
ZEISS Axio Observer 7 with Apotome.2
ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7
