Microscopy & Microanalysis 2015


Plan now to attend the largest scientific and equipment meeting dedicated solely to microscopy and microanalysis in beautiful Portland, Oregon.

From our opening to new closing receptions, the meeting will be packed with short courses, tutorials, workshops, 120+ exhibitors with the latest technologies, all anchored by 1000+ scientific presentations and posters.

Meeting travel awards are available for students, post-docs and technologists!

As always, Society members will reveive reduced registration rates. Visit the society websites for detailed membership information.

Super-Resolution is Here!

Temporal resolution of 0.6 sec/frame enables super-resolution time-lapse imaging of dynamic live cell events - Now in Jackson Hall

In structured illumination microscopy (SIM), the unknown cellular ultra-structure is elcidated by analyzing the moiré pattern produced when illuminating the specimen with a known high-frequency patterened illumination. Nikon's Structured Illumination Microscope (N-SIM) realizes super resolution of ~100 nm in multiple colors. In addition, it can continuously capture super-resolution images at a temporal resolution of 0.6 sec/frame, enabling the study of dynamic interactions in living cells.
