Carl Zeiss' "ZEISS On Your Campus" (ZOYC) 2010 traveling tour brings free workshops designed to educate scientists and their students in the fundamentals of various microscopy techniques to universities across the United States and Canada, providing participants with a unique opportunity to attend educational seminars and participate in live cell imaging workshops.

Participants will have the chance to work with VivaTome, Cell Observer SD and LSM 780 microscope systems and live cells in sessions designed to demonstrate optimization of imaging parameters to minimize photo-toxicity, long term focus stabilization and maintenance of cell viability. Advanced demonstrations will include high speed imaging, FRAP, FLIP and photo-activation/-conversion of various fluorescent proteins.

The three-day workshops that kicked off in February 2010 is traveling throughout the Northeast, Mid-West, South, Mid-Atlantic, and Pacific in the United States, and Western and Eastern Canada over a six month traveling tour. For information on how to participate, please visit www.zeiss.com/zoyc to find a workshop near you. Attendance at workshops is free to all participants. Educational materials and free software for image viewing and manipulation will be provided to registered participants. Additionally, ZEISS will send a complete packet outlining contents and schedules for seminars, hands-on training sessions and demonstrations in which participants can select content that suits their interests and applications.
