AFM BioMed Conference

 

BRUKER Krakow Training Day

Bruker Workshop at AFMBioMed Conference,

Monday 4th September 2017, Krakow, Poland

 

Bruker Nano Surfaces invites you to our BioAFM Workshop and Training Day on Monday 4th September 2017 for delegates participating in the AFMBioMed 2017 Conference. This workshop will present latest advances in Atomic Force Microscopy for Life Sciences. It will give all delegates attending the AFMBioMed conference hands-on exposure to recent innovations for mechanobiology, high throughput cell screening, molecular/cellular dynamics, and highest resolution imaging. Optimization tips and tricks will be shared and reviewed. There will be the opportunity to discuss your own research challenges with AFM applications experts and research peers working in similar fields.

 

The workshop program includes:
- Keynote presentations on biomechanics, high-resolution imaging and high throughput characterization of biological samples
- Practical workshops using AFM Bruker’s Bioscope Resolve  Dimension FastScan Bio and MultiMode8 including:
- Resolution and Speed Optimization | Advanced spectroscopic methods for mechanobiology | Functional synchronization of light microscopy techniques.

Register HERE (only for Bruker's workshop, for the conference you need to register separately).
