TOTALLY re-engineered range of customisable inverted microscopes will be launched by Olympus in September 2012, the company has announced.
Taking advantage of the attention generated by the European Microscopy Congress (EMC) 2012 in Manchester, UK (16-21 September), the new instruments will be unveiled there.
Olympus says this will be its most significant life science product launch in recent years.
The microscopes offer several novel design features not previously seen, which the company says will open up new research applications. The systems are designed to be highly flexible, allowing users to easily customise their set-up to meet the specific needs of their project.
In addition to exhibiting at EMC 2012, Olympus will demonstrate some of its instruments in the RMS (Royal Microscopy Society) learning zone at the meeting. This area is designed to allow scientists and technicians to learn from commercial application specialists, as well as their academic peers.
The company will also be hosting several breakout workshops at the event, where Olympus experts will be discussing the applications the new systems will offer. Seating will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so prompt arrival is recommended.
EMC is held only every four years, and is Europe’s largest dedicated microscopy exhibition.
The 2012 congress will include a training opportunities and a programme of informative technical workshops and talks, as well as networking opportunities.
