Just before International Microscopy Congress starts in Prague, the preprogram of the congress includes a one-day workshop on Cryo FIB-SEM in Life Sciences in collaboration with Tescan Orsay Holding will provide participants with an overview of the whole process from sample preparation steps to the final data rendering. The workshop will have a theoretical and practical part, with a complete workflow of instruments available for use with guidance, including high pressure freezer, sputter coating, vacuum cryo sample transfer and FIB-SEM instrumentation. The High Vacuum Coater Leica EM ACE600 and the Vacuum Cryo Transfer System Leica EM VCT100 will be used for the practical sessions. Product Manager Saskia Mimietz-Oeckler will be present to answer questions.
The workshop will take place at the Holiday Inn next to the Prague Congress Centre, Prague 4. Workshop fee is 95 € and includes coffee breaks, one lunch and workshop materials. To register please click here http://imc2014.com/index.php?page=gate
