The BIC engineers were at Mifobio!

Last month, BIC engineers took part in the prestigious MIFOBIO thematic school, focusing on cellular imaging.

This school, the only one of its kind in Europe, offers a series of courses, round-table discussions and practical workshops run by the participants themselves.

It recreates a real temporary interdisciplinary laboratory equipped with dozens of microscopes of all kinds, from the simplest to the most sophisticated.

The 10th edition of the school took place over 10 days near Hyères on the Giens peninsula.

On this occasion, Clément and Amandine from the plant unit, as well as Monica, Guillaume, Jérémie and Christel from the photonic unit presented practical workshops on a variety of topics, reflecting the interdisciplinary and complementary skills of BIC engineers: CLEM microscopy, expansion microscopy, STED microscopy, light sheet imaging of whole transparent organs, and introduction to the use of the OMERO image database.

For his part, Fabrice managed the organization of the school’s 130 workshops, as he has done since the first editions of MiFoBio.

It was a great moment of sharing and exchange around cellular imaging, a not-to-be-missed event that takes place every two years. It was a great opportunity to update our knowledge and to access the latest developments in cellular imaging.
