ZEN Blue User Meeting

May 6 - 7, 2015 - ZEISS Microscopy Labs New York

  • Outline


    User meetings from ZEISS offer the perfect blend of information about microscopy technology, user applications and scientific background you need for you to get the most out of your equipment. Learn how your research can benefit. Our user meetings concentrate on hands-on labs to provide you with the opportunity to use real equipment and samples, while also exploring a variety of practical topics in common day-to-day microscopy work. Click on the registration tab above to register.

    Topics covered in the class will be:

    • ZEN Blue configuration, interface layout and workflow setup
    • Understand the ZEN Platform to optimize your system and set up your experiments efficiently. Go beyond Smart Setup for your experimental configurations.
    • Working with z-stack and time lapse image acquisition
    • Set up complex multidimensional experiments and explore what Experiment Designer can do for you.
    • Working with tiles and positions: Set up experiments that allow you to capture large fields of view or multiple positions on your sample. Automate well plate acquisition and explore focus strategies to keep acquisition in focus throughout your whole sample.
    • Creating image analysis routines: Use ZEN Blue to create image analysis routines to extract the data you need out of your Images. You will learn how to create your own analysis routines using our ZEN Blue Analysis wizard.

    Attendance at user meetings are free to all participants. Don’t miss out on your chance to take part in this great learning experience.
