PRIMO Micropatterning demo: 2021.22.06- ~22.07.

The Bioimaging Facility at IST Austria is hosting a demonstration of Alvéole’s PRIMO system: a UV-light based micropatterning system. This micropatterning system works as a UV-projector that is coupled to a microscope. In this way you are able to project any microscopic image onto your sample with UV light which opens up a long list of possible applications: Create controlled and reproducible microenvironments for cells, tissue engineering, spheroids, etc. Control adhesion forces, cell confinement, cell migration, tissue engineering Contactless and maskless photopatterning DEMO SCHEDULE:  The Alvéole’s PRIMO will be installed on the 22.06.2021 and subsequently it is available for testing Read More …

BIF Seminar: Union Biometrica’s BioSorter for large and delicate sample types

Dear all, we would like to invite you to a seminar introducing a flow cytometer specially developed for large sample types, e.g. Zebrafish and Drosophila embryos, C. elegans, plant seeds and seedlings, large cell clusters and so on. The seminar will take place on August 19, 2019 in the ground floor seminar room of Lab building east (I06.EG.018), starting at 3pm. Union Biometrica extends the utility of flow cytometry to samples that are too large or too fragile for traditional flow instruments. This technology provides a method for analysis and dispensing, increasing throughput and replacing manual sorting. The BioSorter™ flow Read More …
