Scottish microscopy society

The Scottish Microscopy Society, formerly the Scottish Microscopy Group, was established in 1968 by a group of electron microscopists, but has grown to incorporate the whole spectrum of microscopy with committee members from institutions across disciplines and across Scotland. We aim to bring microscopists from all disciplines together to share techniques, ideas and new technologies.

New Microcourse is up! I present the confocal principle, which describes how confocal microscopes reduce out-of-focus fluorescence in images. Enjoy!

Join us September 29 at 12 pm EDT as Thorlabs Imaging Systems presents the first installment of a multi-part #webinar and live Q&A series covering how to build a #microscope from the ground up. To register, please visit #microscopy #imaging #photonics scotmicro photo

Well done Leandro! πŸ₯³
