Imaging technologies are widespread in the life science laboratories today. Many biological questions may be addressed applying fluorescence microscopy and live imaging technologies. Advances in the available instruments and technologies are continuously evolving. FluoMicro@ICGEB aims at instructing researchers in the use of fluorescence microscopy in life science applications. The Course examines cutting-edge technologies through real-world examples provided by a panel of experts. Four imaging/analysis stations are organized on the instruments: confocal imaging, live cell microscopy, high-throughput microscopy, image processing and quantitative analysis. To this end morning theoretical sessions will provide the necessary background and afternoon practical sessions will permit hands-on experience on state-of-the-art instruments. Participants will be divided in small groups, which will rotate between the four practical sessions. It is expected that the participants at the end of the Course will be capable of applying fluorescence microscopy and live cell imaging to their experimental needs. A Certificate of Attendance will be provided to all participants. 



  • Confocal Imaging
  • High-throughput imaging
