Asylum Research Sponsors Events in Continuing Efforts to Expand Usage and Understanding of AFM/SPM
Published on October 22, 2008 at 1:06 PM
In its continuing efforts to expand the usage and understanding of Atomic Force/Scanning Probe Microscopy (AFM/SPM) in the biological sciences, Asylum Research is sponsoring four events in the coming months.
The events include:
- AFM of Biological Interfaces Workshop, Nancy University, Nancy, France, October 23-24, 2008. The workshop is sponsored by the University, LCPME, Asylum Research, and Atomic Force F&E and will bring together all levels of AFM/SPM users in the biosciences, as well as those new to and interested in the field. The Forum will combine talks from leading researchers as well as instructional sessions using Asylum Research’s MFP-3D™ AFM. The event is open to all researchers in the AFM field. Registration is now open at http://www.atomicforce.de/Workshops.php.
- Asylum Research AFM in Biology Class and Workshop November 5-7. 2008. This event is specifically designed to teach aspects of AFM as applied to the biosciences and is open to all users of AFM instrumentation. Hands-on training is provided on the Asylum MFP-3D system. Topics include force measurements and imaging of DNA, proteins, lipids, and live cells. A limited number of spaces are still available for the class. Additional information can be found at www.asylumresearch.com.
- The AFM Forum at University College Dublin November 20-21, 2008 includes lectures and equipment workshop sessions that will focus on life science applications. The Forum is organized for scientists to share and exchange their cutting-edge research being. The instrument workshops are designed so attendees can “ask an expert” and receive tips and tricks while receiving instruction on the AFM. Additional information can be found at www.asylumresearch.com/Forum.
- Asylum Research Cell Biology Tutorial, December 15, San Francisco CA. This tutorial will be presented at the Cell Biology Conference and Exhibition on December 15 in San Francisco. Current research efforts will be presented on cell morphology, mechanics, and dynamics. This workshop is available to all attendees of the Conference and no registration is required.
