Share Article

LabRoots will host the webinar June 1, where attendees will gain a better understanding of the tools and instruments available to elevate lab discoveries with enhanced microscopic details.

Heinrich Bürgers, PhD Product Manager, Stereo & Digital Microscopy, Leica Microsystems

In modern research, success depends greatly upon discriminating between effects and background. Understanind and choosing the most appropriate instruments for research and understanding the basic principles that were designed to drive that research, will prove critical in research finding. This webinar will focus on innovations in stereo microscopy for brightfield and fluorescence typically used in laboratories working on zebrafish, drosophila and c. elegans.

In this webinar, sponsored by Leica Microsystems, participants will learn when to choose a greenough microsope in research: depth of field, resolution and working distance. They will also gain a better understanding of why the correct light base is important to get better insights into your sample and how the right system can help you to see more details in fluorescence screening.

Dr. Heinrich Bürgers, product manager at the Stereo & Digital Microscopy Division of Leica Microsystems, has been selected as the speaker for this event.

Bürgers studied biology at the University of Regensburg and Munich in Germany. After receiving his doctorate from the University of Heidelberg, he worked in the field of image analysis and fluorescence slide scanning before joining Leica Microsystems as a Sales Rep. He now serves as the product manager at the Stereo & Digital Microscopy Division of Leica Microsystems, where he manages the fluorescence stereo microscope line.

LabRoots will host the event June 1, 2017, with a start time of 8:00 a.m. PDT, 11:00 a.m. EDT. To read more about this event, learn of the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
