Park Systems and Radboud University Organize Workshop on Ion Conductance Microscopy

Park Systems, the leading nanotechnology solutions partner of nanoscale measurements and systems for both research and industry and The Institute for Molecules and Materials(IMM) at Radboud University, are co-organizing the workshop for Ion Conductance Microscopy, to be held at Radboud University, June 24th, 2010.

This workshop of invited and contributed talks will cover the recent advances in live cell measurements using Ion Conductance Microscopy (ICM) techniques, as well as the state of the art SPM studies of various biological systems. The meeting will also include an equipment lab for demonstration of the XE-Bio and various ICM imaging techniques.

Major topics to be covered include:

  • Live cell Measurements by ICM
  • Investigation of electrolyte-nonconductor interfaces by ICM
  • Studies of the dynamics of membrane formation and destruction by ICM

“Cell is a fundamental building block underlying all biological systems. Countless efforts have been made from various fields of science and technology to better understand this complex system. With the existing research tools available today, it has been difficult, if not impossible, to perform nanoscale studies of single living cells, said Dr. Ryan (Young-kook) Yoo, the Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing at Park Systems.

He also mentioned, “Now, we are opening a new chapter in the study of live cells using Ion Conductance Microscopy (ICM). This technological advancement may provide a unique and unprecedented opportunity in single live cell studies by enabling targeted localized stimulation and non-destructive monitoring of cellular activity heretofore inaccessible to other analytical techniques. The goal of this workshop is to build a network of scientists centered on the applications of ICM and to promote dissemination of theoretical knowledge, experimental protocols, and novel technique development in this rapidly growing area.”
