The Field of View Research Program, Turku BioImaging and Cell Imaging and Cytometry Core jointly organize the workshop “FROM IMAGE ACQUISITION TO ANALYSIS AND DATA STORAGE: available resources and good practices” on Wednesday 29.3. at 14:00 in BioCity Turku.  At the workshop, you will learn how to navigate in the complex landscape of bioimaging techniques and how to properly execute all the steps of imaging workflow from image acquisition to data management. In addition, after the workshop, you will be familiar with the available resources at Cell Imaging and Cytometry Core and Turku BioImaging facilities and will know the responsible persons in the facilities. Please register latest by 21.03.23 here: When: March 29th at 14:10 Where: BioCity Turku, Tykistökatu 6A, Turku

3rd BioImage Informatics Finland symposium is organized by Helsinki Bioimaging at Biomedicum, Helsinki, Nov 14th 2022. The symposium brings together researchers and facility personnel working with analysis of microscopy images of cells and tissues to discuss the latest developments in bioimage informatics. The program includes four sessions focusing on applications, methods, software tools, and analysis services. After symposium dinner will be organized at participants own expense. The symposium is free but registration is required. The lecture hall holds room for 60 participants so we wish everyone who registers to also be present at the symposium. If you have registered but are unable to attend, please let the organizers know so that we can make room for other participants. For any inquiries, please contact Lassi Paavolainen ( Registration deadline: November 6th, 2022 More information about the symposium can be found here: When: November 14th, 2022Where: Biomedicum,  sh.1-2 (bottom floor), Haartmaninkatu 8, 00290 Helsinki

Turku site of FiAM has been able to acquire a new instrument, the ONI nanoimager, that strengthens its focus on technologies in the field of super-resolution microscopy. This instrument allows quick and reliable single-molecule localization studies. Additionally, Turku has purchased the Hyperion Imaging mass cytometry system, which combines immunohistochemistry (metal ions coupled antibodies and markers) with mass cytometry, to rebuild an image of tissue sections or stained cells on a microscopic slide. This technology adds spatial imaging to our technology portfolio which was not available in FiAM Node. These new technologies are located at the Cell Imaging and Cytometry Core in Turku. This facility is part of FiAM and most of its other high-end instruments are already available to Euro-BioImaging users. All these new technologies complement the multimodal technology offer of FiAM excellently and have been requested both by local and outside users, and we believe they will greatly benefit…

The 21st International European Light Microscopy Initiative (ELMI) meeting had a comeback in 2022 as an in-person meeting held in Turku, Finland (7-10 June 2022). ELMI 2022 was organized by Turku BioImaging, in collaboration with the Medical Faculty of the University of Turku, Euro-BioImaging Finland and Turku Bioscience. ELMI 2022 was a hybrid event, and a subset of the program, including the scientific presentation, was also available online. ELMI 2022 had over 500 participants, of which over 400 on site, and a very active program of talks, workshops, exhibition booths, poster presentations, discussions and social events. ELMI 2022 brought latest updates on the latest light microscopy developments, research, techniques, and instrumentation. During the morning sessions, international leaders were giving plenary lectures, while during the afternoon sessions, company workshops provided demos of the latest microscopy techniques and instruments. ELMI 2022 continued the successful tradition of bringing together microscopy users, developers, core facility staff,…
