Suggested duration: 3 to 10 days
The AOMF invites applicants from around the globe to participate in our International Microscopy Visitors Program (IMVP). The IMVP is a self-paced program combining hands-on training by our expert staff with ample individual practice time on our microscopes for a truly thorough microscopy learning experience.
Each day will consist of 2hrs of hands-on microscope instruction time followed by 4hrs of unassisted microscope practise time. The program is designed for individuals or groups of no more than 4 participants (discounts for groups may apply). The IMVP can be arranged anytime of the year subject to microscope and staff availability.
The duration of the course is flexible, depending on your microscopy experience and ambitions. A 3-day program would be sufficient to gain a thorough working knowledge of confocal fluorescence microscopy, including:
In a 5-day session we could preface the confocal training with the fundamentals of widefield microscopy, both transmitted-light and fluorescence, including such topics as:
A longer visit could include such topics as:
