Training in our facility consists of a four-hour individual session, including basics of confocal microscopy, system startup, software orientation, image acquisition and optimization, file management and export, and an introduction to advanced functions of the system.

Training is a hands-on experience, including ample time for imaging – so trainees are encouraged to bring their own samples.
