Commercial Workshops
Dotted around the hall will be the four workshop areas, each hosting their own daily programme of drop-in, informative workshops presented by industry experts. From strain mapping to LED illumination and sample prep to in situ microscopy there are plenty to choose from, each going towards helping you achieve the most accurate and reliable data possible.
You can view the commercial workshop programme at

Learning Zone
The Learning Zone is a unique feature of the mmc-series and will include seven areas including TEM, SPM, Digital Microscopy and Sample Preparation and each will feature equipment and impartial experts ready to offer advice and answer your questions. The Seminar Theatre will again host its only daily timetable of introductory talks including a few new presentations for this year such as Light Sheet Microscopy, Journal of Microscopy Author Workshops and Developing your Career.
