Specimen Processing
11th Annual Workshop
on
During the hands-on specimen prep portion of the
workshop tissue will be provided. Participants may
choose to work with either neonatal myocardial mouse
fibroblasts grown on coverslips or adult c57 wildtype
mouse heart sections.
Individuals may also choose to bring their own tissue.
Please bring your tissue in PBS after fixation in 4% Paraformaldehyde. Contact Anna Harper for further questions or details.
Basic Confocal
Microscopy
June 13- 17, 2016
Instructors:
Dr. Robert Price, Research Professor, Cell Biology & Anatomy and Director, Instrumentation Resource Facility, University of South Crolina School of Medicine
Presented by:
Instrumentation
resource Facility
The South Carolina EPSCoR/IDeA Program and
the USC School of Medicine Instrumentation
Resource Facility are pleased to announce the
9th annual workshop on Basic Confocal Microscopy. The hands-on workshop will target beginning and intermediate users of confocal microscopes and will provide lectures from experts in the field of confocal microscopy and
the use of Adobe Photoshop and 3-D software
for processing confocal images. Lecture material will provide information on the basics of fluorescence and fluorescent probes, biological
specimen preparation (fixation, staining, optical properties and mounting materials), strategies and protocols for selection of antibody
labeling, the basic components of a confocal
microscope (lasers, dichroic mirrors, microscope objectives, photomultiplier tubes, etc.)
and an overview of some applications of confocal microscopy.
During the laboratory portion of the workshop specimens will be processed for double
and triple labeling and proper selection of user
adjustable parameters to optimize image collection will be addressed and demonstrated. Participants are welcome to process their
own samples or to use samples that will be provided. Several point scanning and spinning disk
confocal systems from various manufacturers
will be available for use so participants will
have ample time for hands on use of the instruments during the workshop.
