MEDOR has been part of the Annual conference of the Nordic Microscopy Society hosted by the University of Iceland June 5-9 2017.
The EVOS FL Auto 2 is the latest generation of the fully automated, digital inverted multi-channel fluorescence and transmitted-light imaging system. This EVOS FL auto 2 system supports high resolution live-cell imaging, mosaic tiling, multiposition well scanning, cell counting with thresholding and time-lapse studies.
The microscope was used under Malin‘s supervision at a workshop organized at Læknagaður on Monday June 5th. The workshop was conjointly organized by the University of Iceland and the Chromosome department of the University Hospital. The „Telomere PNA FISH kit/Cy3“ kit from Agilent was used and high quality images were aquired.
