Synchrotron Based FTIR Imaging Workshop
Synchrotron Based FTIR Imaging enables high spatial resolution (micron-scale) non-destructive chemical imaging of tissues, living cells and (bio)materials, by combining infrared spectroscopy with microscopy. Importantly, minimal sample preparation (no fluorescent tags, only tissue freezing) is necessary. To learn more about this, and to get hands on access to the facility, consider attending this workshop. If you have samples to test, you are welcome to bring them (please fill out a Rapid Request Form), or you can see results from test samples from others or that we have on hand.
This three-day workshop is for new and experienced users of Synchrotron Based FTIR Imaging with FPA and is taking place at the Synchrotron Radiation Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison from January 11-13, 2011.
The workshop consists of:
Day 1 - FTIR 101 – Basics of FTIR Spectroscopy, Microspectroscopy and imaging
Day 2 - Hands on Sample Preparation and Synchrotron Based FTIR Imaging
Day 3 - Spectral and Image Analysis of Synchrotron Based FTIR Imaging
Registration may be for any or all of the 3 days.
