Monthly Microscopy Meeting

The next meeting is at 9:00AM Thursday the 31st of August, in the seminar room of the Benham (Zoology) building. The OCEM intends to purchase an SEM to bring new capabilities to the unit. In order to decide on the optimal configuration, we have organised several presentations by providers. This month we will hear from Kamran Khajehpour from AXT, and Australian based supplier who, amongst at very wide range of EM preparation equipment, offer the Tescan range of scanning elecron microscopes and the Delmic range of CLEM platforms and cathodoluminescene detectors.

There will also be a sales presentation at 1.00PM on Thursday the 31st August in room 120 of the Hunter Centre.
