FLIM-Videos auf Youtube

Auf Youtube gibt es rund 20 Stunden Videomaterial aus dem Symposium „Beginners guide to fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM)“, das unser Imaging Network gemeinsam mit zahlreichen Partnern organisiert hat. Die Playlist enthält einführende Vorträge und interaktive Demonstrationen am Mikroskop.

Seminar series “fluorescence microscopy”

We provide an introduction into different instruments and methods for fluorescence microscopy – starting with the preparation of samples as well as basic functions and instrument settings up to characteristics in the technical design of special microscopes. The techniques covered include fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) and fluorescence-lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM), super-resolution methods such as stimulated emission depletion (STED) and single molecule localization microscopy (SMLM), and single particle tracking. Everyone working at Münster University, and especially master and doctoral students, are welcome to participate!

Currently no dates scheduled.
