2019 Seasonal Utrecht Microscopy Meeting

Winter meeting: Tuesday February 5th, 15.00 – 17.00  (Stratenum 3.108 Vondelzaal)

Dear microscopist,
In two weeks it is time for the first Bioimaging Utrecht meeting of the year. We have invited two very nice speakers:

Have you ever wondered about all the funny numbers and labels on the side of your objective? What do they tell you and how do you choose the one objective best suited to your application?

Our first speaker will shed light on numerical aperture, objective classes and other values and indicators and relate them to the daily usage with your experiments.

Our second speaker Wim van Egmond is by training and trade, not a scientist but an artist and photographer. As someone who does not have access to a high-tech lab every day he uses an innovative approach to the preparation of his images. In the talk he will give during our meeting he will show these beautiful images and explain how he is able to make them.  This might be not directly related to your science but it will be a very nice talk.
