The Melbourne Histology Platform and the BioSciences Microscopy Unit invite you to an upcoming seminar: Sample preparation and staining for optical and electron microscopy.

In this seminar, we will cover the key aspects of preparing biological tissues for optical and electron microscopy:

  • Sample preparation: methods of tissue fixation and considerations when selecting a fixative; methods of tissue embedding; tissue sectioning
  • Sample staining: mainstream staining approaches; designing and performing immunolabelling experiments; troubleshooting common staining problems

The seminar will be held 10am – 1pm on Monday 11th November in Room G26, BioSciences 1. The final hour of the session will be set aside as question time or for attendees to discuss current/upcoming projects individually with the presenters.

If you wish to attend, please RSVP by Thursday 7th November.

If you have any questions about the seminar, please contact Chris Freelance or Allison van de Meene.
