Q-PHASE User Meeting

  • Date & Time: 9. 1. 2024 - 10. 1. 2024
  • Location: IMG building

The Telight Q-PHASE User Meeting is a key event for anyone interested in Quantitative Phase Imaging (QPI). Scheduled for January 9th, 2024, it’s a two-day event mixing theory and practice, perfect for both experienced and new QPI users.

On the first day, there will be talks about QPI and recent developments in the field, user experience talks and discussions. The second day offers practical sessions with the QPI system, led by specialists from Telight, providing a high chance set-up the machine correctly for real experiments and also to learn more about how to use the system effectively.

This meeting is organized by Light microscopy core facility of Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and Light microscopy facility of MPI-CBG Dresden, in collaboration and support from Telight company. It is a great opportunity for QPI users to learn, share experiences, and meet experts in the field.
