LM Facility Managers Meeting 2019
The next Facility Managers Meeting aimed at people running or working in light microscopy facilities will be held at the University of Liverpool.
From very humble beginnings, we have grown to a much more significant and influential community of facility managers. Numbers of attendees have grown 10 fold since the first meeting in 2006 as more and more facilities have opened. We now represent one of the best organised facility groupings in the UK if not indeed the world.
Following on from previous years, you can expect to find out more on the latest developments in UK Bioimaging and how we can feed in to wider international groups that are starting up. We will also discuss some of the basic elements (funding, impact measures) of running a core facility as well as the latest technological and application developments that effect ourselves and our users.
The meeting will be taking place in the Central Teaching Hub at The University of Liverpool.
The evening meal on Thursday 3 January, and all accommodation booked through the RMS directly, will be at The Liner Hotel.
Techno bites have now been fully booked. To be added to the waiting list, please email Kate Jermey.

CoolLED designs and manufactures cutting edge LED illumination systems for researchers and clinicians using the latest LED technology. The company has specialised in fluorescence microscopy since it introduced the first commercially available LED illumination system in 2004. LEDs are now the system of choice because they are more stable, longer lasting, and energy efficient than traditional mercury based illuminators as well as offering superior safety and environmental features.
CoolLED offers a comprehensive range of LED illumination systems for bioscience and clinical microscopy including:
• pE-100 range of compact, simple-to-use, single wavelength illumination systems for screening fluorescence.
• pE-300white range that offers intense, broad spectrum illumination covering the excitation bands of common fluorescent stains for regular fluorescence work.
• pE- 4000 – the universal LED illumination system for research fluorescence, with the broadest spectrum of illumination available from 16 selectable wavelengths, and extensive functionality that sets a new standard for the industry.
CoolLED technology is also available in OEM and tailor made configurations. We can meet the needs of manufacturers who wish to integrate stable, controllable LED illumination into their products.
Exprodo Software produces Calpendo which is an intelligent booking system designed to manage bookings and projects for shared equipment. It can be configured with rules which allow you to control who can book what and when. Highly flexible reporting reduces administrative time spent managing projects, budgets and invoicing.

Founded in 1978, Photometrics is the world’s premier designer and manufacturer of high-performance CCD and EMCCD cameras for the life sciences.
The original architect of the world’s 1st scientific grade microscopy EMCCD camera, researchers across the globe rely on Photometrics’ state-of-the-art imaging instrumentation, including its popular CoolSNAP™, Cascade®, QuantEM® and Evolvecameras to meet their most demanding application requirements.
Photon Lines supplies a range of scientific cameras (including CCD cameras, CMOS and sCMOS), lasers and laser components which are optimised for Lightsheet microscopy. We also supply advanced scientific imaging solutions primarily into the area of biophotonics, such as Label-Free Live Cell Imaging Systems and fluorescence microscopy equipment including the products of PhaseView, who have engineered unique 3D imaging technologies for life science microscopy applications. Based on a novel remote focusing principle, PhaseView imaging products allow for high speed 3D imaging which is only limited by camera frame rate, while keeping bio-specimens in a stable position without moving the objective or stage. Using this acquisition principle, PhaseView’s Alpha3 light sheet fluorescence microscope addresses the issue of high temporal resolution along with spatial high-resolution, to achieve 3D imaging of dynamic biological processes.
