Czech Centre for Phenogenomics and company RMI s.r.o. would like to invite you to an educational workshop „Use of microCT technique for biological applications“ that will be held in Czech Centre for Phenogenomics (CCP) at BIOCEV campus on Tuesday March, 27th 2018.
Workshop will focus on getting the participants familiar with the microCT technique (computed tomography), that allows nondestructive analysis of inner structure of samples with high resolution. This technique has recently been gaining significance in preclinical research (bio applications), including in-vivo (live animal scanning) or ex-vivo applications (characterization of bones, bone implants, embryos, lung, liver, kidney, heart, spleen, fat etc.
Workshop will focus primarily on applications – sample preparation procedures, methods used and results of scanning live animals and other samples. The participants will get acquainted with the latest developments in instrumentation and their benefits. Part of the workshop will also be talks by users of microCT instruments from Czech Republic. Two main application talks will be presented by application specialist from Bruker microCT company – Phil SALMON, Ph.D. from Belgium. At the end of the workshop, demonstrations of real measurements will be performed for participants who will be interested. In-vivo scanner Skyscan 1176 and high resolution ex-vivo instrument SkyScan 1272 will be presented. For Skyscan 1272 it is possible to arrange a detailed presentation with participants own sample measurement.
We kindly ask those interested in the workshop to register on e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org before 20.3.2018, number of participants is limited. Please state, if you are interested in a demonstration of measurement on the instruments.
