ACQUIFER Live Upcoming Events

24.03. – 26.03.2020

Automated Microscopy and Screening

Automated microscopy and screening is increasingly employed in biomedical and pharmaceutical research for the large scale phenotypic analysis of biological specimens. This has led to many solutions for various assay needs and also often to complex setups, limiting use to expert staff. To address this issue, ACQUIFER has developed a novel and easy-to-use high content screening platform.
In this workshop, we will present the ACQUIFER Imaging Machine, an automated microscope following a unique opto-mechanical design rendering it ideal for imaging non-adherent, motion sensitive or large specimens. The focus of this workshop will be:

  • High Content Screening workflows and smart imaging – from image acquisition to data processing.
  • Advantages of the ACQUIFER Imaging Machine concept for reliable, reproducible and fast widefield screening in multi-well plates.
  • Tools and methods for reproducible mounting of e.g. zebrafish in multi-well plates.
  • If you wish to attend the workshop and should you wish to bring your own samples to the
    hands-on sessions, please also let us know by filling the registration form.
    This workshop is free of charge but space is limited.

    13th Swiss Zebrafish Meeting

    This annual meeting is well attended by members of the thriving zebrafish research community from all regions of Switzerland and neighboring countries (A, F, D, I). It has become an important platform to discuss and coordinate zebrafish research in the Alpine region and to share new technologies (covering topics such as fish husbandry, microscopy, gene technology etc).

    20th International European Light Microscopy Initiative Meeting (ELMI)

    The European Light Microscopy Initiative was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment. The aim is to promote the quickly developing field of light microscopy as a fundamental research tool for the life sciences and to strengthen the channels of communication between researchers and industry. The annual ELMI meeting, which has been running for the last 16 years at various venues across Europe, has an excellent reputation within the microscopy community, making this meeting a key event in the calendar of hundreds of scientists and developers.

    The strength of this meeting lies in the mixture of scientific lectures on state-of-the-art, high-end microscopy, which is combined with “hands-on” workshops and an exhibition of the latest technology, organised by the leading companies in the field.
