In March 2017, the MCMP officially became an Olympus Discovery Center. We organized an internal image contest together with Olympus Canada to celebrate our partnership. The results were announced back in March during the Inauguration Day. You might’ve missed them so here are the winners and finalists of the contest!
Hey guys, the update went smoothly and the new updated OMERO server is ready to use!
A new version of OMERO with new features and upgrades is out now! I am planning to upgrade the server on Friday, April 14th 2017. The OMERO server will be down the whole day
Happy new year everyone!
I was at a meeting last week where I was discussing 3D analysis and visualization of fluorescent images. Most people are aware of the commercial software that have 3D capabilities, such as Imaris and Arivis, but I was surprised that my colleagues didn’t know about Vaa3D.
The Molecular and Cellular Microscopy Platform (MCMP) is reducing the price of its systems used for stereology and neuron reconstruction to 5$/h. The reason is to make it more affordable to produce large studies involving these techniques since they require significant microscope time.
I’ve got a presentation next week on Monday October 17th at 11am, in the Bowermann Room (Douglas Hospital). I will go over the basics of fluorescence microscopy and discuss the various techniques and applications of fluorescence microscopy. I will also briefly discuss image analysis and which software to use.
For my first year at the facility, I’ve mainly worked on setting up the facility: moving the microscopes, setting up users fees, training the users, etc. Last winter, I’ve set up an OMERO server at the Douglas for image storage and remote analysis.
