This five-day workshop will cover:

  • correlating large-area images of the same sample from light and electron microscopes;
  • correlating 2D SEM and 3D SEM images from the same sample;
  • 3D electron microscopy, including VolumeScope and FIBSEM.
  • strategies for sample preparation suitable for both light and electron microscopy;
  • real-world applications and workflows, including cell and resin embedded imaging;
  • how to handle complex modern microscopes with multiple modalities;
  • image data fusion, including management of data and large image sets; and
  • state-of-the-art instrumentation and new developments coming to market.

The workshop will be geared towards microscopists who are interested in learning new techniques for special projects or who are in the market for new instruments, particularly those who are interested in utilizing large area/volume imaging in their research.

Numerous vendors will demonstrate their instruments.

Participants will have an opportunity to:

  • Build their professional networks
  • Collaborate with experts in the field
  • Learn tips and tricks for real-world CLEM applications
