[For Internal Applicants Only] NanoLSI–Nikon Solutions Joint Workshop

Researchers in distress, apply now!! Postgraduates are very welcome!!

・ I want to start live-cell imaging, but I’ve heard that is challenging…
・ I have recently started it, but it’s not working, and also I don’t know why…
・ I’m secretly wondering if there is a better way than what I’m doing to visualize…

Our workshop..

with image analysis technology experts from one of the leading companies in microscope technology development will help you overcome these concerns.

Live-cell imaging..

s a technique to visualize and observe the movement and morphological changes of biological tissues and cells from the outside. The advantage of this technique is that it allows the observation of structural changes in living organisms without the need for fixation. On the other hand, as the method is more challenging to perform on living cells and tissues, it requires more time than ordinary observation and often leads to failure.
