Imaris Workshop 11. September 2018

At the University of Fribourg we use Imaris to process and analyse multidimensional image data-sets issue from epi-fluorescene microscopy.  In particular we use it’s advanced functionality for 3 dimensional (optically sectioned) image data and perform volumetric analysis.

We organise a worksop with representatives of Bitplane for you, to discover the possibilities of the software and train yourself as a user.

Huygens Workshop 15. September 2017

You would like to get the best out of your image data, try to push the resolution? If this is the case you should sign up for the upcoming Huygens  workshop. During this one-day-workshop you can learn about image restoration and how you can apply it to your own image data here at the University of Fribourg.

Find all the details of the workshop on the event-page.

Huygens Workshop

SVI_huygens_presentation_smaller

This autumn the makers of the Huygens Software will give a workshop about image deconvolution at the University of Fribourg.
There is no perfect instrument, every device comes with a certain number of imperfections, that impact our measurements. This is also true for light microscopy, where we encounter spherical aberrations, chromatic aberrations, bleaching, stage drift, and diffraction related distortions (blur) among an even wider spectrum of phenomena, that can have some undesired impact on image acquisition.
This workshop will be all about how to deal with this kind of measurement imperfections and what the experimenters can do about it.  To situate this techniques also referred to as image restoration see the figure bellow, putting image restoration into the context of a typical biomedical experiment pipeline.

This workshop is of particular interest to researchers, that want to study small, sub-cellular structures by the means of three-dimensional epi-fluorescence microscopy. Image restoration can significantly improve the quality of acquired images, rendering small structures like axons more distinguishable and allow for a more reliable object quantification.

Organisation

date: 15. September 2017 from 9:00-17:00
location: PER21, F230
participation conditions: UniFr staff, free of charge, registration required

Participants are free to attend only the theoretical part in the morning (about the why and the how of deconvolution) or  the entire workshop with a practical session in the afternoon.

Schedule

Time Description
 09:00-10:30 presentation of Huygens (functionality, use cases)
 10:30-10:45   coffee break
 11:00-13:00 deconvolution theory: experimental design, sampling, pitfalls, etc. (includes hands-on examples)
13:00-14:00   lunch break
14:00-15:15 Introduction to Huygens Remote Manager
15:00-16:00 Work on your own data

New IT Infrastructure Launch

We would like to invite you to the launch presentation for the platform’s new IT infrastructure next Wednesday April 1st at 12:15. No joke.
The presentation will take place in the large Auditorium 0.110 Auditorium in Plant Biology.

We will talk about some new acquisitions the Bioimage Light Microscopy Facility has made recently that should help you with the management and the processing of your microscopy data.
Firstly and most importantly there is a new web-client for the batch processing of deconvolution jobs, the Huygens Remote Manager (HRM). We’ll demonstrate how this piece of software can be integrated easily in your workflow to improve the quality of your measurements from confocal microscopes. Secondly we’ll to give you a preview of OMERO. We are currently  in the middle of the final testing and would like to give you a glimpse of what is about to come. Finally we’ve just got the new licenses for Imaris 8. This might also be an opportunity to speak about the future requirements of the functionality and license numbers of this software.
