Description

Are you interested in accessing our ASCUS Lab Open Sessions to work with microscopes? Then why now check out our November Microscopy Skills Workshop Series to learn some introductory tips and techniques for sample collection, mounting and staining as well as an introduction to some more advanced techniques we have available in ASCUS Lab!

You can take just one or all of these workshops whether you are interested in exploring a variety of environmental samples you might collect and the different ways you can mount them. We can introduce you to some of the stains we have available in ASCUS Lab so you can experiment with these further yourself during our Open Sessions. And come get a glimpse of the advanced techniques we have available and check out how they enhance different samples.


Absolutely no previous experience is required to attend, so just select the date to book!
