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.

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.
