The Open Source Microscope Concept in Theory and Practice
20 Jun 2013

The speed at which life science microscopy applications are currently evolving requires equipment able to match the pace. As the number of tasks required by microscope systems ever-increases, scientists have a real need for equipment flexibility.

This webinar presents a new open source concept to microscopy, which enables microscopists to effortlessly mould their imaging system to wide-ranging application needs.

Prof. Sarah Köster, Research Group Leader at the University of Göttingen and Wolfgang Hempell, Section Manager at Olympus Europe, will demonstrate how open source frames can be easily modified for even the most high-end set-ups, such as fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy.

Key learning objectives:
• Single wavelength FCCS for in-situ studies of molecular assembly.
• Infinite light path, the gateway to modify observation methods of microscopes.
• Open source microscopy, making the infinite light path accessible to every researcher.
